Uggg, I don’t know what happened to this post but I had it all typed out and poof! Now only the featured image remains. Quickly recreating this…
I am doing a monster themed (we’re not afraid of monsters) storytime later this week and what better way to incorporate a prop than with finger puppets!
My monster finger puppets are going to go to the rhyme of Ten Little Monsters:
One little, two little, three little monsters.
Four little, five little, six little monsters.
Seven little, eight little, nine little monsters.
Ten little monsters can’t scare me!
To create my puppets, I used felt, tacky glue, googly eyes, pipe cleaners and marker. For these, I cut out the felt and once I had everything positioned where I liked it, I glued the sides shut and secured them with paper clips while they dried. For a longer lasting puppet, I could have sewed the edges but I didn’t feel like lugging out my sewing machine.
Once everything was dried, I drew on my faces and ta-da! Monster finger puppets!
Soooo these came out awesome but I am going to have to have them just march across my felt board because there is no way I can put all ten on my itty bitty fingers and be able to move at all. I didn’t really think of the scale. BUT they are still cute and I will use them!
Fun, easy and something you can definitely tweak for other themes.
That’s all for now!
