Rubber Glove Finger Puppets

Rubber Glove Finger PuppetsFinger puppets are always a cure for the summer boredom and these are a fun and novel twist to a traditional craft. Cut the fingers from a rubber glove (I used pinking shears on these to make the zig zag edge) and decorate each with googly eyes, pipe cleaners, feathers, pom poms, sequins, netting, paper, felt and anything else a dashing bug deserves. (We ran out of enough googly eyes so we were forced to make a few cyclopes).

The stiff rubber easily fits on little fingers and the colorful surface makes decorating fun.

Seeing as I somehow have a ton of googly-eyes, I see a great project!

Fabulous. Looks like I've got my craft for Thursday all set again (once I run out for some more googly eyes). Thanks to you yet again!

I made something like this out of an old winter glove, using fabric paint to decorate, when I worked in day care. My little kiddos loved them. The rubber gloves sound great -- they're probably indestructible!

Ooo the cyclops gets my vote! Sounds like you need a trip to the hobby shop. [translation = craft store]
