Find a small flat box to make into a mini house. The box must at least be as tall as your craft sticks.
Paint the box with acrylic paint. Choose a darker shade of paint to hide the print on the box. If you want to completely cover the print, first paint the box with white acrylic paint. Once completely dry, paint with the final color. Set the box aside to dry.
The box house and the stick puppet characters will be made up of basic shapes. You can either draw your own shapes or print out our templates.
a.) Print out our templates - print out the house template and the family stick puppets template on A4 or Letter size paper. The puppets were designed to be glued onto jumbo craft sticks (6" long and ¾" wide) while the house template was intended for a small box about 6" long and 3½" wide (e.g. Pocky biscuit sticks box). Color and cut out the shapes.
b.) Make your own shapes - with the size of your box and craft sticks in mind, cut out shapes from colored paper. Below is an example but you can always modify them to accomodate more family members. You can even include pets!
Check on your painted box. Once it's dry, glue the shapes onto the front and back. Both sides should have a roof (big triangle), two windows (squares), and a door (rectangle). Draw a door knob on each door. If your box has open flaps, they should be on top, between the two roof triangles.
