How to Make the Bear Paper Finger Puppet
What you need:
- printable template
- color papers (brown, beige, and pink)

Step by Step Tutorial
Cut out the template as carefully as possible.
Trace around the head, belly, and paws on brown paper.
Go ahead and cut them out.
Draw the snout on beige paper and cut it out.
Draw the two pieces – the insides of the ears – on pink paper, then go ahead and cut those out too.
Glue the snout part onto the bear’s face.
Glue the insides of the ears.
Go and draw the eyes, the mouth, the nose, and the eyebrows.
You can make whatever face on the bear that you’d like!
Draw two circles for your fingers on the belly.
Cut out the holes.
Glue the head on the body of the bear.
Go ahead and glue the feet on.
Draw a circle around the outline of the leg with a brown marker.
This part is optional, but it gives the bear more definition.
