Step 1: What You Will Need:

You will need a long cardboard tube, 2 straws, scissors, a black marker, 2 large Pom poms (optional) and tape (optional)

Step 2: Poke Three Holes in the Tube.

With the scissors, poke a hole on each side and one in the back of the tube. Then stick the straws through the holes on the side and stick the bendy parts through the back hole like so. If you want to tape the straws together at the back, you should do it now.

Step 3: Draw a Face

With the marker, draw a face and if you like put the two Pom poms in the top if you have some.

Step 4: All Done!

Now you can dance with your puppet and make even more to share! Crank up the music and dance with your pal! (To make it dance, pull and push the back straws.)

    Well, poop. Looking back at this I see how much I've changed, this was just mucking around and now on my other account I'm taking things seriously. Oh, so, if any of you want a proper instructable, check out my other one called TieDIY. I'm starting a business- well, more like selling stuff at the markets and taking orders- with all DIY things like cards and personalized doggie jumpers and stuff. It's gonna be called To DIY For, and sorry, it's only in Australia, so yeah most people on this site are American. But oh well. See ya!
