Finger Puppets

Update! See this link on echantedlearning.com for cute two finger finger puppets which use your fingers as the legs for puppets. Also see this link from Cheryl A Smith on Etsy.com - fantastic finger puppets made from colourful fabric.

Finger puppets are great for story telling. Small characters such as a king, queen, knight and dragon, which placed on the fingers make entertaining bed time stories for children.

Children have strong imaginations so a green finger from an old glove makes a great dragon! The dragons teeth can drawn using a black marker pen - making a really scary dragon! See here for a long list of finger puppets available to purchase from Amazon.co.uk.

Make your own finger puppets

If you would like to be creative and make your own finger puppets, then this is a list of the equipment and materials you will need:

  • Cheap wool gloves - see here for a list of wool gloves sorted by cheapest first.
    • Cut the fingers off these gloves
  • Things for sewing or glueing onto the fingers, ideas include:
    • Peanut shells
    • Buttons
    • Diamante
    • Shoe laces
  • Marker pens for drawing on the fingers

It will be easier to draw on the glove when the glove is on your hand and still has its fingers, so plan ahead and think about what you want to draw on the glove.

Once you have collected all the materials you can be creative and make your own finger puppets. This is a great fun low-cost activity for teachers and parents.
