Recently I’ve started working with little children after a long time out of the classroom. It is exhilarating and exciting and exhausting and so much fun. I want to work with the children to make finger puppets, we are going to design puppets based on the children’s drawings.  Wish us luck!

In the mean time, here are a collection of links to tutorials and patterns for some finger puppets I love very much.


Paper Kittens by Laura at Cupcakes for Clara, published in Mindful Parenting Magazine

No sew finger puppets by Crafty Gemini


Alien Monster Finger Puppets by Whispered Whimsy (pattern on Ravelry)

I`m sure that making puppets is really funny and challenging. I also think that they can serve as toys only but also as a way to educate and bring up children in a playing form. When kids are small, these puppets can help them to understand the material of lessons easier.
