Finger Puppets from Series 1.1

30 Sep

Do you like to put on your own plays? You can use finger puppets like these as characters. To draw your own, draw a small animal or person the way you normally would. Leave enough room on either side of the character to draw two rectangular tabs connected to the character. When you cut the character from the paper, include the two tabs, then tape the tabs together so they stay on your fingers while you perform your play.
