Animal Finger Faces

Introduction

Creating these simple finger animals will help develop your child's hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills, as they cut out different shapes, add stickers and draw on expressions with a pen to create their animal faces. Your child will probably need some help cutting out the animal shapes and applying the stickers to their fingers (it's a bit tricky to do this on your own).

How to extend the magic

This make is perfect for inspiring some imaginative play. Once you've made all the finger faces, why not put on a little puppet show together? You could make a stage out of a shoe box and hide your fingers faces behind it so they can't be seen. Then pop them up and act out some scenes featuring your animal characters.
