Make a flock of fingers

These starling finger puppets are really easy to make. Why not make a starling for each finger and create a whole flock?

Stuff you need

You will need:

  • Scissors
  • Sticky tape
  • Starling templates (print out the downloadable sheet)
  • Paper

Stay safe!

Be careful when you use scissors, or ask a grown-up to help you.

Step-by-step guide

  1. Cut out a starling from the template you have printed off.
  2. Cut a strip of paper 100mm x 15mm.
  3. Ask a grown-up to wrap the paper strip round your finger and hold it in place with sticky tape.
  4. Stick the cut-out starling to the rolled-up paper on your finger.
  5. Why not make a starling for each finger?
