Toilet Paper Roll "2 or 3 Fingers" Finger Puppets



I was staring at all my saved toilet paper rolls recently, trying to figure out what to do with them, when I realized that they would make cute "2 or 3 fingers" finger puppets. I finally got around to doing this project with the girls last night and I think they came out really cute. We also had a really good time making them and playing with them. I predict that we will be making more of these soon. Below is a quick tutorial on how to make these easy finger puppets.

Supplies that you need:
Toilet paper rolls
Markers
Felt, fabric or colored paper scraps
Yarn cut up in to pieces for hair
Glue (we used Tacky Glue)
Scissors

1. First we glued on the eyes and drew the mouth and nose.

2. Then we designed clothing from our felt scraps and glued them onto our puppets.

3. The last thing we did was glue on the yarn for hair (R gave her puppet's "hair" a trim and added side bangs!).

The finger puppets were super easy and super fun to make. By the way this project worked well for my 4yo, 7yo and 10yo.

CJM,

Thanks for posting the puppets! By the way making them Purim puppets is a great idea. As usual a holiday has caught me by surprise again. I have a few things that I'm going to post for Purim. A cute welcome garland for our front door and a few mishloach manot boxes.

Thanks for this creative DIY idea for those old paper rolls for the toilet paper. I think these clever ones will fit my oak bathroom vanity design for my bathroom.
