How to Make Big Hero 6 Baymax Puppet Craft
Use your marker to create the shape of Baymax on your white paper. There really is no right or wrong way to do this. You can try the round oval body first, add on ovals for the arms and legs, and a sideway oval for the head. See our example.
Now, cut out your shape. Since you might have stencil marks on one side, simply use the other side for the face of Baymax, making it your front side of the puppet.
Create the face of Baymax. This is super easy! Make the sideway line with two black dots at the end.
Now, take your Baymax shape and glue it to the end of a craft stick. Hold it in place until it is secure and dry.
Your Baymax puppet can now be used to tell its own story. Act out scenes from the movie or create your own using your Baymax puppet as the star. If you are really feeling crafty, you can try making the whole cast!
