Jungle and Farm Finger Puppets

I really like to use finger puppets to add a little visual to songs.  These little guys are so great, because they also stick to the flannel board.  Just today I used the farm animals with a felt bus, and they hung on like champs!  I will sometimes put one puppet on while we move like that animal, or I'll just put them up on the board to watch us move.  It's also always fun to hide one behind a book and then have it peek up over the top, and then have that little puppet help us read the story, or point things out in the pictures, or whatever!

I bought the patterns for both sets at Precious Patterns.  It's been months since I made them, but I remember that it was super easy, the instructions were great, and I think they are pretty darn adorable.

This particular set isn't for sale, but please check out my shop with many of my other sets:

Some songs to go along with these include Old MacDonald, The Animals on the Bus, Down by the Ocean, Down on Grandpa's Farm, and I'm sure there are a million more.
