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
Gnome finger puppets by While wearing heels
No sew finger puppets by Crafty Gemini
Alien Monster Finger Puppets by Whispered Whimsy (pattern on Ravelry)
Finger puppet tutorial by Maritza at Soto Softies
