My boys and I had a fun afternoon last month making our own felt finger puppets! You only need a few supplies to create these cute little characters and your kids will LOVE them.
Supplies: felt, scissors, glue, markers, and googly eyes.
1. Fold a piece of felt and trace your finger onto it by placing your finger at the edge of the fold.
2. Cut along the traced line until you get to the fold. When you unfold the piece of cut felt it will look like a heart that doesn’t come to a point at the bottom.
3. Add a line of glue to cut edges of the felt, leaving the bottom open for your finger. Fold the felt together and hold in place until the glue dries with a clothespin or by sitting a heavy object on top of it.
4. Decorate your finger puppets! Add googly eyes, draw mouths, and cut out ears, wings, manes, and even bow ties to glue on!
That’s it! We hope you enjoy these little creatures. What cast of finger puppet characters will you make?
