Butterfly finger puppet

Introduction

This creative make will help develop your child's hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills too, as they colour in and then carefully snip around the finger puppet. It's a bit fiddly in places, so your child will probably need some help neatly folding the template in half and cutting around the dotted lines.

How to extend the magic

Imagine you are beautiful butterflies flying through gardens and across fields and meadows full of flowers. Ask your child what they think it must be like to have wings and fly up high in the sky. Where would they to flutter off to? Your child could fly their finger puppet around the room, or they could put it to one side and gently flap their arms up and down like you.
