Adding color to your printable finger puppets…

When coloring these finger puppets I’ve got a little hint that will help your little people avoid a lot of frustration! Color first, cut second.

By coloring first your artist will have a large flat piece of paper to color on with no edges to constantly be coloring on and off of. For that reason I would always encourage you to give your kids the whole page, color, everything, and then cut out the individual puppets last.

Once they’re colored just curve them a bit. Add a bit of clear tape to complete the loop of paper that is the “ring” portion of the finger puppet.

Inspiring creative play…..

Coloring and cutting these family finger puppets is just the beginning of the fun.  These little paper puppets are the perfect way to inspire hours of pretend play or even take a little deeper dive into relationships and social emotional learning.

Write some dialogue, create your own scenery, and put on a finger puppet play. Create your own still life with your puppets. Use them for storytelling. Or add them to a basket of tools for self expression and pretend play.  Whatever you choose these little guys are fun and playful.  I know you and your little people will have fun with them!
