'Where the Wild Things Are' TP Roll Puppets

Pin It

You guys know by now I love any activity inspired by our favourite kid's stories. So I am super-happy to be pinning on the awesome Children's Book Activities and Crafts pinboard hosted by Kristina of Toddler Approved. Which is where I first saw this 'Where the Wild Things Are' craft which inspired our little cardboard tube puppets.

I guess my puppets are a bit more cute than wild, but it was still a lot of fun acting out our own wild rumpus!

The Wild Things didn't have names in the book, but in the movie (world's most depressing kid's film ever - yes even more than when Bambi's mom dies!) I think this Wild Thing is called Carol. I think this one is kind of goofy and cute looking, the one in the film is a lot of more miserable and angry looking!

p.s. If you have an abundance of TP rolls you might also be inspired by our TP Roll Superheroes. Red Ted Art also has a feature called Loo Roll Guess Who that is hilarious!


  1. This is great!!! I love your blog and the activities you do!

  2. these are fun! i love the book, though haven't seen the movie yet! how fun this would be with blocks or playdough! *pinning it*

  3. So rad!!! Haven't seen the film. Have heard its depressing though. Do love the book. I think carol is an awesome name for a monster.

    Nashes terrible teeth :D

    1. hahaha Carol is my mother in laws name. :)

  4. My 5 year old saw your puppet and hid behind my back saying it was scary =) I love puppets and these are adorable! Thanks for linking up to our Love Books Resource!

  5. These are really cute. I haven't read J Where the Wild Things Are yet but it's on our to do reading list.

    Thank you for linking up to Tuesday Tots this week

  6. Oh my goodness! So funny, we started making a Where the Wild Things Are sensory tub today with TP roll characters! I agree. Most depressing kids film ever! I had such high hopes for it with the awesome soundtrack from Arcade Fire. Still love the book though and your puppets are so adorable!
