Miss Independent was asking for a finger puppet this morning so I just cut out a rectangle from felt. Folded it over and stapled the two sides. I left an opening at the bottom for her to slide in her finger. I stuck two sticker eyes on it, drew a nose and mouth and stapled a piece of string (yarn would have been nicer, but I don't have any) to the top for hair, voila instant puppet in five minutes. This would be a fun activity for slightly older kids to make on their own. If I had more time I would use fabric glue to make the pocket instead of a stapler and like I said above use yarn for hair.
