Materials

Tip: Print on sturdy paper for best results.

Directions

  1. Step 1

    Print out the Backyardigans Finger Puppets printable and help kids cut out the shapes of the characters.

  2. Step 2

    Trace the shapes of the characters onto foam sheets or cardboard. Cut out the foam or cardboard.

  3. Step 3

    Help kids glue the characters to the foam or cardboard and allow to dry.

  4. Step 4

    Use a hole puncher to cut two holes at the bottoms of each character about 1 to 2 inches from the bottom. Using the puncher, punch around the circles to make the holes big enough for kids to poke their fingers through.

  5. Step 5

    Have kids stick their fingers through the two holes and have fun making the characters walk, run, and--of course--dance!

Tip: For durability, you can reinforce the area around the fingers with clear adhesive tape.
