To Make Paper Finger Puppets

1. first print off the free download for the Nativity Finger Puppets.

2. let your little person color the little figerines.

3. cut out each character. {there are 2 of each figure on each puppet so that it shows on front and back of your finger. brilliant idea, Kori!}

4. fold in half along the dotted line.

5. tape the 2 long sides together to leave the bottom open for a finger.

6. insert finger to make a puppet!

aren’t these so perfect for “reenacting” the Christmas story? or to use while reading the Christmas story from the bible to engage your younguns?

    Oh Linda, I so glad you did this! I have been looking for months for simple images of the Nativity. I want to make blocks for the nursery room in our church and haven’t been able to find uncolored pictures or even scrapbook stickers to use. These are perfect because I can add more sheep and other items so there are more blocks to play with. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

    Thanks for the great take home project for my 3&4 year old class! Was looking at a lot of different ways to tell the Christmas story but the manger scene still says it best!
