Finger Puppets!

The kids got some new construction paper for a Christmas gift last night, so we made finger puppets this morning. You can see on their faces the excitement and wonder they had for the tiny puppets. They had a great time acting out really funny scenes and stories. A super fast craft with fun results!

    Such a simple idea, yet you can see the pleasure they take it them. And oh! those pudgy fingers!

    We love the city scenes and we were wondering if you could make someone in a wheelchair to add to the people.

    Thanks for sharing your work with us.
