Hand with different sticky faces on it

Once you have made all your finger faces, why not put on a puppet show? Try making a stage out of a box and then hide behind it so only your fingers can be seen. You could decorate the stage with paints, draw a scene for the puppets to play in and then write a story and act it out.
