These finger puppets are perfect for kids who love animals (especially farm animals) and they can also be used as a fun addition to story time – don’t you think story time would be so much more fun with these guys around? You could also get insect finger puppets to join in.

Back to the farm animals? The set includes 6 different finger puppets: pig, horse, duck, cow, sheep and rooster.

These puppets can fit any finger, as you can adjust the circumference while creating the “body” of each farm animal (you can cut as much paper as you want to wrap around your finger).

Puppets are multisensory toys that help tell stories and develop other important social skills, so let your child use them as a fun learning tool while still having fun.

Are you ready to make your own farm animal puppets?

Follow the step-by-step instructions below

Print out the template (available at the end of this step-by-step guide).

Color the animal puppet template you want to make. We will show you how to make a cow puppet, but all the animals are very similar when it comes to making them.

Each animal has a head, a body, a head and body that connect together, and legs. There are also ears, tails, and other parts that some animals have and will be glued to that particular animal.

You can color with a variety of crayons, however we found markers to be more effective. We colored the entire body of the puppet up to the second dashed line to fit our fingers.

Take scissors and cut out all the pieces of the pattern.

Start by gluing the ends together (forming a paper roll shape).

There are 4 different circumferences marked for the body, choose the circumference that best fits your or your child’s finger (or even stretch it out if needed)

Create the stem and press and hold the “tube” firmly to let the glue set. If you don’t want to wait, you can also use clothespins to hold the tube together while the glue dries.

Glue the “head and body connection” part to the body “tube”.

Now add a little glue to the part that sticks out from the “tube” body…

…and glued it to the puppet’s head.

Glue the ears and horns to the back of the head (each animal has different parts).

Add some glue to the “tube” body and glue the round (elliptical) body to it.

Your farm animal finger puppet is complete and ready for story time and play.
