Winnie the Pooh is a beloved traditional children's book character with distinctive features. To make crafts that hold true to the original Pooh and friends facial features, the Disney website offers several templates and crafts. For additional crafts, you can use these official Disney templates to be sure your Pooh looks like the real thing.
Paper Bag Puppets
Print the templates from the Disney website for Pooh, Tigger or Piglet, and cut them out with child safety scissors. For the Tigger puppet, use an orange paper bag, for Pooh use yellow and for Piglet use a pink paper bag. Glue the jaws just under the flap, glue the head piece to the top of the flap, then add the features by following the photo instructions on the website.
Winnie the Pooh Mask
A Winnie the Pooh mask template is also available from Disney. To make the mask, print out the template from the website. Cut the head shape from a piece of thin cardboard, and cut an identical head shape from yellow paper. Use a darker yellow paper for facial features, black for eyes and eyebrows and red for the mouth. Place the facial features on the mask according to the template; place the eyes where the child's eyes will be, and punch holes in the black eyes for the child to see through. Attach a piece of thin, black elastic to wear the mask by stapling either side of the elastic to the thin cardboard backing of the mask.
Winnie the Pooh Candy Box
This craft is good for use at a birthday party, Valentine's Day or Halloween. A full-colour Winnie the Pooh illustration is available on the Disney website for print. Print out the Pooh image and have the child use safety scissors to cut out. Fold Pooh's arms and body along the dashed lines, then glue the tabs down to create a box shape in the back of Pooh. Fold the legs forward to hang over a table or desk. Fill the box with little candies.
Winnie the Pooh Felt Character
The template for the Winnie the Pooh felt character is available on the Disney website as part of a larger project. Use the template to make a Winnie the Pooh or Piglet character out of felt; for a more in-depth craft, make the whole wall hanging project. To just make the Pooh character, cut out yellow and red felt according to the template. Use fabric glue to attach the shirt, and use brass brads to attach the arm and legs. Paint or draw the face on with a black marker according to the template Disney offers in the last page of its project templates.
