How to Make the Printable Forest Animals Finger Puppets

What you need:

  • our printable template
  • scissors
  • glue
  • coloring supplies (optional)

We suggest printing the pages on heavier print paper or construction paper, but they’ll also work well with regular print paper.

Step by Step Tutorial

Print out the templates and have the kids color them (if you chose the black and white version) before they cut them out.

All of the printable woodland animals are assembled in the same way. We’re going to show you how to make a fox puppet from this set.

Cut out the outline. Older kids can cut directly along the outline (as closely as they can), and there are also dashed lines that your kids can follow to cut out the puppet.

Make sure the kids also cut out the two paper strips as they will be required to make the puppet.

Next, make folds along the three dashed lines along and inside the puppet’s mouth.

Run your fingers across the folds to make them sharp.

The order of the folds isn’t important, the important thing is to get the correct shape once you are done.

There should be three folds in a zig-zag style.

Next, fold the paper strips along the dashed lines.

Apply glue on the paper strips (on the area that has the word glue) and stick it on the back of the puppet.

One paper strip (bent into a half circle) goes on top and one on bottom of the closed mouth.

The red fox puppet is ready to open and close its mouth.

We love how it turned out, and we’re sure your kids will want to make all of these cute forest animals finger puppets.
