Wacky Finger Puppets for Kids!

Wikki Stix No-Prep Wacky Finger Puppets for Kids!

Materials needed:

  • Assorted Colors of Wikki Stix
  • Scissors

Set out Wikki Stix and scissors on a table or a large tray.  Invite kids to create any kind of finger puppet desired.  In order to get started, kids may need to brainstorm suggestions with each other or an adult.  The base of the puppet is created with one Wikki Stix wrapped around a finger to create a spiral.  Toppers for the spiraled finger puppets are limited only by a child’s imagination.  No glue or tape is necessary as Wikki Stix are tacky and the pieces stick together with fingertip pressure.

Some suggestions to get the kids’ creativity started:

  • Create your favorite cartoon character
  • Create characters associated with various products
  • Make a video game character for your finger puppet
  • Make shapes, numbers, or letters for your finger puppet
  • Create a seasonal character or shape (snowflake, snowman’s head, hearts, shamrocks, Easter Egg, Flag, Sunshine, Clouds, Pumpkins, Apples, Jack-o-Lantern, Turkey, Christmas Tree, or Star).
  • Create a whimsical character from your own imagination
  • Storybook characters:  kids could create The 3 Little Pigs and a wolf to put on a puppet show for friends or family.  Counting rhymes, such as 5 Little Monkeys, are fun to create, too.
  • Movie characters:  Minions, Turtles, or Olaf – what other movie characters do your own kids love?

Kids can create finger puppets for Mom, Dad, or family members to wear, put on a puppet show with siblings and friends, or wear their own unique Wikki Stix puppet creations.
