2. Color in the body. Glue the template to a piece of lightweight cardboard (a file folder or empty cereal box work well) and cut around the edges.
3. Print out a photo of yourself (I chose 10-Minute Puppets author Noel MacNeal), with the face about 2 .5″ to 3″ wide. Cut out only the head and glue it onto the body.

5. Now run along and find your pot o’ gold!
