Dolphin Craft Ideas

This blog is all about fun dolphin craft ideas.  We’ve got a free download of a dolphin paper bag puppet for the kids to make.  Another quick craft is to download the free dolphin coloring page from a previous dolphin blog.  After coloring the dolphin, cut it out and paste it to a craft stick to make a stick puppet!

Here are just a few of our favorite dolphin craft activities that we found on the web that are simple and fun to do.  We also have a paper bag puppet template to download, color, cut out and paste to a paper bag.  It was specifically designed to use only one sheet of paper so that it is cost effective for groups of kids.

This coffee filter craft is just too cute.  Simple instructions are at Memorizing the Moments.  She recommends using washable markers to color the coffee filter and I agree whole heartedly.

This dolphin themed activity is from Preschool Powol Activities and is such a great activity for kids.  They get to make their own puppet with a free download and then decorate a paper plate to give the dolphin a home.  This activity is great for all kinds of motor skills.

What I like best about this preschool craft is that Mom of Keeper of the Memories set out the supplies along with a reference photo of a dolphin and let her son do his artwork almost on his own.  Best of all supplies are easy to find and not expensive.  They used tissue paper, glue and glitter.  She has a free download of the dolphin shape.



Have some spare paper lunch bags laying around? Then get ready to turn them into some dolphin puppets. Use our free dolphin paper bag puppet pattern designed by The Tucson Puppet Lady herself!  It’s a great activity for the kids to color, cut out, glue and then play with.


Need a puppet with a moving mouth and makes expressions?  We’ve got the pattern!

And if you are really bitten by the craft bug, you can use our Dolphin Puppet Sewing Pattern to make your own puppet. It is available as a digital download so you can start sewing immediately. We recommend using fleece and felt fabrics because they are inexpensive and readily available from craft stores. Customers tell us how easy our step by step patterns (with lots of pictures) are to follow especially after watching the video tutorials.  In fact you can watch our free video tutorial on how to sew the dolphin puppet right now!

What our customers are saying:

“I love her patterns.  Pattern well written and easy to follow.”

“I love how the puppet turned out.  Please keep the patterns coming!”

In our next dolphin blog, we’ll be sharing a few books which feature dolphins that preschoolers (and older kids) enjoy. The books range from fact to fiction. We’ll also have a free pattern download to make a dolphin hand puppet out of felt. You don’t even have to know how to sew, the whole puppet can be made using a hot glue gun. Stay tuned to our blog to get your free download.
