DIY Halloween Paper Finger Puppets {Tutorial}

Halloween is almost here and I have a super quick and fun activity for you and your kiddos to do! Make your own Halloween finger puppets 🙂 These really only take minutes to do and your kids will have fun drawing funny faces on their little paper ghosts.


What you will need:

Paper (cardstock weight)


Fine felt pen


I also used the free printable bat template found here to make the small bat finger puppet.


1. Draw some ghost shapes on your white cardstock paper. Decorate as you wish!


2. Cut out the shapes, and also cut a thin strip of paper to be used as the “ring” for your finger


3. Attached the paper ring to the backside of the ghost and secure with tape.




4. Get creative and make monster puppets, and use the bat template to create little bat puppets too 🙂
