Christmas Story Stick Puppets Free Printable

I am so happy you are here. Behind every piece of work you see on my blog, there are tons of hours of work. And It’s my joy that you get to spend time with your kids doing something fun.


The materials you need are very simple and most likely you have them on hand.

All the materials you need to complete Christmas Story Stick Puppets
  • Printer + Paper
  • Christmas Story Stick Puppets Free Printable (Download Below)
  • Colors, Crayons or Markers if you print black and white version. I Personally love these crayola markers
  • Scissors
  • Popsicle Craft Sticks, you can find an amazing deal here
  • Glue or glue stick

Step 1

I have provided you with 2 options. Color and Black and white printables. Depending on your time, resources, and your child’s needs, you can print either one. I chose the color one.

You can download them at the end of the instructions.

Step 2

If you printed the black and white version, color the characters. Once you’re done, cut them up as show in the picture below.

The Christmas nativity scene printable comes in both colored or black and white.

Step 3

Glue the characters to the Popsicle sticks.

Here is my experience. When you have liquid glue, the color of your characters will get a little wet and lose some of the real color. If I could go back, I would use a stick glue for this part. However, I am sure your kid won’t care at all 😛

Step 4 – Optional

To add more fun, build a little house with the Popsicle sticks. For this, you do need normal glue.

Step 5

Have fun and let your little ones play around with the puppets!

This is a great project for the kids during Christmastime!

This is a perfect time for you to interact with your children and teach them about Jesus!

Here are some questions:

  • Who is the baby?
  • Why is Jesus so important for us?
  • Who is your favorite character?
  • Do you know Jesus loves you so much?

The sky is the limit. It’s so refreshing to listen kids’ replies. Sometimes they come up with things we are not expecting at all!
