Little Ghosts: Finger Puppets


We made these little ghost finger puppets for some Halloween play. All that was needed was fabric, string, a colored pencil or crayon and stuffing.



We started by cutting a piece of cloth and my oldest daughter then drew a ghost face with a colored pencil.



For my youngest daughter, I drew the face and she cut around the edges to make it "spooky" looking.




We put a piece of stuffing in the middle and then cut a piece of string. I tied the string around the fabric and then my daughter put the ghost on her finger while I tightened it to make sure there was enough room for her finger to fit in.



Then we had a puppet show!

These are adorable. I plan to try them out for my son's first birthday party as preschool craft.

As always I love your posts and do many of them with my 2 little girls. I saw this post today, and since it's all from natural materials I had to send it to you.
