Heart-Shaped Finger Puppet

Puppets are universally appealing to young children. They are approachable, interesting, and funny. There is a wide variety of beautiful commercial puppets available; however, homemade puppets work just as well and can have more personality.

What you’ll need:

  • Scissors
  • Pink, red, and white poster board
  • Glue

How to make it:

  1. Cut out a three-inch paper heart and a one-inch paper heart from red (or pink) poster board.
  2. Make two finger holes in the top of the large heart.
  3. Draw a face on the smaller one.
  4. Overlap pointed ends of the hearts and glue these together.
  5. Accordion-fold strips of paper and glue these to the heart for arms.
  6. Place your fingers inside the holes and manipulate these heart puppets.
  7. Kids will enjoy working the puppets alone. Make up a story together about this valentine puppet or sing a favorite song.If you like this craft idea go to kaboose.com
