Family finger puppets

Hey there, little creators! Are you ready to embark on a crafting journey that will bring smiles to your faces and keep you connected with your loved ones? Well, I've got a fantastic idea that combines creativity, playtime, and a heartwarming connection – making finger puppets! Get ready to turn simple materials into tiny companions.

Materials You’ll Need:

Before we dive into the crafting fun, let’s gather up the materials you’ll need to create your finger puppet friends:

  • Coloured paper or felt
  • Safety scissors (with the help of a grown-up)
  • Glue or tape
  • Googly eyes (optional but super fun!)
  • Markers, crayons, or coloured pencils
  • Yarn or string for hair (optional)
  • Stickers (optional)
  • Any extra decorations you’d like to use

Step 1: Choose Your Puppet Pals

Think about the people you want to create finger puppets for. These could be your loved one in the Army/Navy/Air Force, family members, or even friends. 

Step 2: Design Your Puppets

With your favourite people in mind, you can draw them or use the template below as a base finger puppet. 

Step 3: Give Them Personality

Time to bring your finger puppets to life! Use markers, crayons, or coloured pencils to add details to their faces and outfits. You can also stick on googly eyes for an extra touch of personality and charm.

Step 4: Assemble Your Puppets

With all the pieces decorated, it’s time to put your finger puppet pals together. Attach the body parts using glue or tape.

Step 5: Add Hair and Accessories

You can add yarn or string to your finger puppets to create hair for extra fun. Give them funky hairstyles or match their hair to the people they represent. You can also use small bits of felt to make hats, glasses, or other accessories.

Step 6: Let the Play Begin!

With your finger puppet friends ready to go, it’s time for some playtime magic! Slip them onto your fingers and let your imagination take you on exciting adventures. You can create stories, put on puppet shows, and share laughs with your little companions.

Through the power of your creativity, you've turned simple materials into adorable finger puppet pals that hold a special place in your heart. These tiny companions will be your buddies during playtime and remind you of loved ones who are away serving their country.
