Supplies Needed To Make Ghost Finger Puppets
Directons to Make No-Sew Ghost Finger Puppets
Fold your felt in half and cut five ghost shapes about 2 inches wide and 2 1/4 inches tall.
Optional: Cut the bottoms with pinking shears for a zig zag effect. You will have 5 pairs of shapes, 10 total.
Take the top of each pair and have your child (or yourself) draw ghost faces with permanent marker. This is easiest to do if you help by holding the felt steady and remind them not to push too hard.
Lastly, glue your puppets together. For each pair run a line of hot glue around the curved edge of the unmarked felt layer and lay the drawn piece on top.
