How To Make Super Speedy Ghost Finger Puppets!

You and the kids will be able to craft up a whole handful of these ghost finger puppets before you can even say BOO! They are super easy, super quick and super fun!

Start by drawing a pencil circle onto your t-shirt fabric and cut it out with pinking shears. (The zig zag edge is great for the bottom of your ghost puppets.) I drew round a cereal bowl.

Next dab some glue around on the top and upper edges of your plastic lid. (Make sure the plastic lid is plenty big enough for a finger to go in and out of, we don’t want any stuck!)

Put the plastic lid upside down onto the middle of your t-shirt fabric circle. Flip the whole thing upside down and press the fabric onto the glue around the edges of your lid too.

Use a black sharpie of felt marker to draw on your ghost finger puppets’ spooky faces.

I think it’s fun to give each little ghost finger puppet a different expression!

Now your ghost finger puppets are finished you can pop them on your finger and BOO all your friends!

Why not make ten little ghosts and use them to play along with this fabulous Halloween book Ten Timid Ghosts? It’s great for building early number skills and rhyme recognition.
