No Sew Finger Puppets Craft

As a follow up to last weeks finger puppet theater we decided to make some finger puppets.  We came up with the cutest, funnest finger puppets... totally by accident! I was ready with my felt, thread and needle, I had already started drawing outlines, when Emma took one of the pipe cleaners, curled it all around her finger, and gave me the best idea ever!  We made a piglet, a duck, and a funny looking cow :)

What you'll need
Pink, yellow, black & white pipe cleaners
Pink, yellow & white medium pompoms
4 pink tiny mini pompoms
Googly eyes
Pink, orange, white & black pieces of felt
Hot glue

Curl the pipe cleaners around your child's finger. For the cow, place the black and white pipe cleaners together and curl them at the same time. Cut out a closed U shape out of white felt and glue it to the white pompom, draw two dots for the nose and glue the googly eyes.  Next cut two small triangles out of the black felt and glue to the top of the head and right next to them glue two pink mini pompoms.  Then glue the head to the body.

For the pig, take the pink pompom glue mini pink pompoms as ears.  Cut a small circle out of the pink felt, draw two dots for the snout and glue to the head.  Next glue googly eyes or as we did, cut small circles from white felt and draw a dot to each and glue to the head.  Once its done glue it to the pink body.

For the duck cut a semi circle shape out of orange felt and glue it to the yellow pompom, then glue the googly eyes to the head.  Once the head is done glue it to the yellow body.

Let the fun begin! Emma loved them and played with them for hours!
