Ghosty finger puppets

Cut out simple ghost bodies from the white felt and glue them to the craft sticks.

Leave half of the stick poking out the bottom – this is where you’ll hold your finished finger puppets.

Use your imagination to decorate your puppets with bow ties, eye brows, buttons and hair bows. Use glue to secure them to your ghost.

Allow everything to lay flat to dry, then your ghosty finger puppets will be ready to play!


  • Encourage the kids to put on a puppet show for the family! Get them to hide behind the couch, or create a mini-puppet theatre using a box – decorate inside to create your scene, and cut doors and windows in the sides for your puppets to make their entrances and exits from the stage.
  • Create other non-ghostly characters.
