Palm and Finger Puppets


  • Washable markers


  1. Using washable markers, draw a face on the palm of your child's hand, or draw small faces on the pads of each finger so that the puppets can "talk" to each other.

  2. Draw puppets on your own fingers and get some conversations going between your puppets and your child's.
