finger puppets


my dylan is a massive fan of caillou.
so big that in one of the episodes where caillou made finger puppets
he took off the caps from his markers
and said that those were his finger puppets!
(ingenuity at 2 years old makes this mommy proud!)

so what did this not-so-very-crafty-mommy do?
research online for a DIY finger puppets, of course!

i found these gorgeous patterns at an etsy store


very nice, right?
yeah... no.  i didn't get to make these.

we instead ended up making these finger puppets instead!

*pix from original DIY instruction*

the actual instructions for this DIY called for construction paper
but we decided to use foam sheets instead


and with the help of the glue gun
we were able to create the base!


the hubby who has a knack for art
did the work on the drawing
and we ended up with the chicken!


we also made the elephant and plan on making more.
for now, it's a great small project
and the little man couldn't be happier!

Well the orignal ones looked awesome but the ones you made look great too. I think pen caps if about as creative as I get, luckly my husband is artistic so he can handle any stuff like that.

I love DIY projects! So much fun. Your puppets turned out cute.

I have a small addiction to etsy. It's becoming ridiculous.
