Finger 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.
