Remember finger puppets? We were looking for a kid-friendly project one day, and I remembered these. I got some white card stock, doodled a few monsters (with no legs, of course), and cut holes out for little fingers. The fun part was letting her decorate them. I put a variety of sparkles, sequins, plastic jewels and puffs in a muffin tin and let her go wild!
(PS: The little walrus-toothed guy came from a drawing from a college buddy, James Stowe, who runs a website called Sidekick Quests. He has a thing called “Fiendish Fan-Made Fridays,” where he takes kids’ doodle monsters and makes fancy grown-up versions of them. This one was a “Toelizer,” a monster my girl made up…)
