Step 2: Place the body of the finger puppet over a piece of cardboard (we recommend using the back-side of a cereal box). Cut out the pattern, together with the cardboard, along the outer line.

Step 3: Fold the body of the finger puppet along the dashed line (use the pattern as reference). Glue or tape (we recommend using double sided tape) the back together leaving enough space for a kid’s finger to fit inside.
