Super Easy Finger Puppets

By Leslie Manlapig

Today I’m so excited to share this tutorial for the easy-peasiest finger puppets ever. They take just minutes to make and then you’re ready to perform your very own shoe box theater play.

You need just three basic materials and you’re all set. Ready? Let’s make some finger puppets!

Here’s all you’ll need:

  • New Yellow Rubber Gloves (I used size small)
  • Sharpie Markers
  • Fabric Scissors

Grab your gloves and snip the fingers off. You can keep the puppets yellow, or turn the fingers inside out to make white puppets.

Let your creativity run wild and doodle characters directly onto your rubber fingers. (For some puppets, I stretched the fingers out as I doodled. For others, I placed the rubber finger onto my own and then doodled.)

And that’s it – you’re done! Within minutes you’ll find yourself with a whole troupe of lovely new story starters friends to play with at home or when your out and about.
