Watch the below video to see how to make finger puppets from rubber gloves. Thanks to our sister company Kidspot Australia for creating this.


Cut off the fingers from a pair of gloves.

Encourage your children to decorate them by sticking on googly eyes, glueing little pieces of yarn on for hair, attaching a button for a nose and so on. They may find it easiest to put the finger puppet on their finger while decorating.

Use the permanent marker to draw whatever features are missing.
