Glove puppets.

If you look through your hat and glove bin, I can almost guarantee you will find a lonely glove that doesn't have a match. Instead of throwing it away, give it a second chance by making it a puppet glove!

Each finger will be a different puppet. You can either glue or sew the following items to each finger to make a whole handful of fun!

Scraps of yarn can be used to make hair. If you don't have scraps of yarn, wadded-up thread will work just as well. You could even use ribbon or string.

Small buttons make wonderful eyes, or you could draw them on with a marker.

Scraps of fabric will work for clothes, or maybe you have some left-over, baby, Barbie doll clothes that would fit a puppet finger just perfectly.

A broken necklace would become a brand new one around the neck of a finger puppet, or you could use a broken bracelet.

The ideas of what to use to create your puppet glove are endless. Look at the picture to give you ideas.
