| These felt finger puppets are just adorable to play with and have so many uses. Get the older children to make their own and set up a stage to tell the story or use them as your own story props, very young groups will also appreciate them for free play time.
Disclosure : I am posting this anyhow by request. Craft felt is hard to source in my location so I used a mixture of thicknesses and scraps.
|To make this craft you will need a pair of scissors, coloured felt, a glue stick, a black pen, the pattern printout, and either sewing thread and needle or a hot glue gun.
For printing with no colour PDF – 1 page
Cut out your pattern pieces.|
Lightly glue each piece onto the felt in the colour chosen then cut out.
Remove the template piece when done cutting.
|Once you have all the pieces for a character you can start attaching them together.|
Sew or hot glue the body.
To make the centurion you must sandwich the headpiece into the body as shown.
Tip – don’t want to give your kids hot glue or needles, pre-make the craft to this point.
|When making the centurion you must stop at this point and finish the helmet by cutting the plume into a fringe.|
Add the face, hair and any other decoration.
While you could use hot glue or thread for this it will also work with a standard glue stick.
If you wish, add two dots for the eyes using a black pen.
The pattern contains a centurion, Jesus, a servant and a Jewish elder.
