Finger Puppets

For our family Christmas gift exchange this year, I drew my brother’s family. He has twin boys that are one and a half. Since our budget is a little tight, I decided to make them something. My little boy is about the same age as them, so I went with something I thought he would like: Finger puppets.

I googled for felt animal finger puppets and used the ideas I saw to help me make my own. The little red tote was all my doing, though, and I’m rather proud of it. The barn door opens and shuts, and the zoo bars aren’t attached, so you can put the animals in the zoo cage.

I think they came out cute, so now I want to make some for my own little guy. I’m thinking of maybe making the barn and zoo animals and then also making a set of woodland creatures — fox, rabbit, owl, bear, squirrel — mostly just because I think a fox finger puppet would be so adorable.
