Zany Circus Characer Puppets- FREE DOWNLOAD
Colour in Zandee, Tobelia, Kadin, Gabby, Diogenes, and the Goblin. Cut them out, and sticky-tape a pop stick to the back of each one to make your puppets.
If you want to, you can draw a circusy background, and make your own puppet show.
If you're feeling particularly arty, you could even create your own original character (or make a puppet of yourself) to include in your zany puppet show.
