Aren’t these 5 little monkeys finger puppets so cute! I think they are just about the cutest thing! I found this idea a few years ago on the blog, Homemade by Jill. She includes the patterns for all the pieces, instructions on how to put it all together, and the printable of the poem too.
After I made them, I made a simple draw string bag to keep all the puppets together, laminated the poem, and attached it to the bag. A perfect way to keep everything together! Do you ever get great toys that have lots of pieces and then the pieces are found all over the house and the toy or game isn’t quite the same with all the pieces? Yes, that happens to us often. Keeping everything in the bag has saved me finding little monkeys and a crocodile all over the house!
I gave these puppets to one of my sons for their birthday and it’s been a well loved toy by everyone ever since. We have used it at preschool too, and I think its safe to say that kids will love it!
So, make some fun puppets! The kids in your life will love them!
