Five Little Ghosts No-sew Finger Puppets
"Get into the Halloween spirit with these adorable no-sew finger puppets. Your little ones will love creating and playing with these sweet and spooky little ghosts. This simple craft is perfect for fingerplay, I’ve even included a few fun rhymes! With both preschoolers (who will love playing with these) and younger children (who might prefer watching an adult) in mind, these puppets fit little fingers as well as grown-ups. You need just a few simple supplies and little help from your resident artist to create these phantasmic finger puppets!"
Primary TechniqueGeneral Crafts
- White Felt
- Permanent Marker
- Hot Glue
- Optional: Pinking Shears
Fold your felt in half and cut five ghost shapes about 2 inches wide and 2 1/4 inches tall. Optional: cut the bottoms with pinking shears for a zig zag effect. You will have 5 pairs of shapes, 10 total.
Take the top of each pair and have your child (or yourself) draw ghost faces with permanent marker. This is easiest to do if you help by holding the felt steady and remind them not to push too hard.
Lastly, glue your puppets together. For each pair run a line of hot glue around the curved edge of the unmarked piece and lay the drawn piece on top.
