I love finger puppets. (I've posted about my collections before.) They are small enough to have and store lots of them, and their small size doesn't stop them from being a great tool to draw in those less than attentive wiggly kids during a group time. I like these people puppets, and they can be made with so many different skin and hair colors that all children can find one to relate to. I also love the opportunity they give to represent all sorts of families: two moms, two dads, single parents, big families, small... Endless possibilities!
These would be great to use with a theme on families or All About Me. But of course, pulling puppets out at any time is just a great way to get and keep the attention of the kids in your group.
The pattern for these adorable people is from Precious Patterns on Etsy (though I did make a few changes to the faces).
You can find lots of finger puppets and felt sets at my shop!
