Create Your Easter Bunny Finger Puppet in 7 Easy Steps
For a fun time all around, follow our step-by-step guide. We’ve created the perfect finger puppet shape that is really easy and quick to make, especially in large batches. Perfect for a puppet show!
Step 1 – Fold your fabric
Ready to get started? Once you’ve picked your easter fabric it’s time to give it shape! Begin by folding it to make an equal square piece, then in half and then in half again, so that just a quarter of the fabric remains.
Step 2 – Draw the outline
Grab a marker pen to outline the finger your puppet will sit on. Place your finger on the felt and begin to carefully trace your finger to create the perfect shape.
A Little Tip: When tracing your finger, remember to leave a little extra room around your finger for the glue to be applied. This will help avoid your puppet from being too tight!
Step 3 – Cut your bunny out
Take your scissors and carefully cut out the shape of your finger that you drew. You should now have two identically shaped pieces of felt, in the shape of your finger. You may be wondering how this will change into a bunny, but don’t worry, we’ll get there!
Tip: Help your children when using scissors to ensure their safety.
Step 4- Grab your glue
After you’ve made two separate patterns, grab your glue and start glueing around the edge of one shape. Then place the second finger shape on top, leaving the middle untouched. Do ensure it is stuck together well and fully dried before you carry on to the next step.
Tip: Ensure there is an opening at the bottom of the finger puppet, wide enough to comfortably sit on your hand, but not too loose!
Step 5- Give your bunny character
Here is where your easter bunny comes to life. Using your second choice of easter fabric, sketch out long bunny ears and nose you’re happy with and cut them out carefully. This may be a little fiddly but take your time.
Step 6- Create cute bunny features
Stick on your facial features to complete your cute finger puppet. You can be more creative by drawing in detail such as the whiskers or a carrot, as well as adding a pom as a tail. Don’t forget your googly eyes! Bring out your creative side and make it as unique as possible.
Step 7- Make memories!
And you’re done with your easter bunny crafts! Don’t forget to name your easter bunny and put on a puppet show. It’s a great activity to get involved in, making your Easter celebrations that bit more exciting!
