Origami Finger Puppets

by Claire




The ancient Japanese art of origami is a challenge for me but these finger puppets are so adorable I was up for it. You can make these little cuties out of paper napkins while you are waiting for your food at a restaurant!

We didn't have any napkins or origami paper so instead we cut scrapbooking paper into 8x8 squares and followed 4 steps:

1. Fold top corner down to bottom and unfold. Bring the bottom corner up to the center and fold. Refold top corner back down.
2. Fold top right and left corners to the middle and fold both flaps up on an angle for the ears. Fold the ears back or front depending on what animal you want.
3. Fold sides for a square face and bring center point up. Turn.
4.  Draw on faces.


We found this activity at Martha Stewart Crafts for Kids.

Feel free to share your project photo's on our Facebook Page.  We would sure love to see them!

Happy folding!
