Every kid loves a good puppet—hand puppets, finger puppets, puppet theaters.
I made this little finger puppet from a paper coin roll. Her skirt is a wide ribbon bunched and glued at the waist, and her shirt and face are just cut paper. And her feet, my favorite part, are jellybellies. I know, there is not longevity in sugar as feet, but I had them on hand and they make me laugh. (This would be a really fun birthday party craft!)
Every puppeteer needs a theater. Use a cereal or cracker box as the structure and download the curtains and characters from Bloesum Kids.
Every time I see these hand puppets by Cate & Levi at the gift shows, I fall in love. They are made from reclaimed sweaters and no two are alike.
