2. You can also cut out eyebrows and stick them on. Your clown will appear more expressive this way.

3. We suggest using googly eyes, but we couldn't find any while we were making this, so we just drew some instead! But we do think googly eyes would be much cuter. You can also add a mouth at this point. Take some artistic liberties with it! You can customize this DIY any way that you want.

4. "Word Play" is all about using the alphabet and your imagination to describe the world around you, so we thought it would only be fitting to attach the letters that describe this object to the back of it! Finally, if you'd like, you could give your clown a little hat using more pipe cleaner and some construction paper.

5. Enjoy your very own clown puppet that fits right on your hand! After you see "Word Play," see what inspiration you can take from the show to create a new narrative of your very own about the world around you and the many words you can use to describe it!
