Today I made these cute little monkey finger puppets to go with our book Five Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed, by Eileen Christelow.
I hand drew the outline of the monkey on a piece of paper, cut it out, and used it as a template for all five monkeys. Then, I just used the hot glue gun to glue on the googly eyes and the other parts of the monkey. I ended up making 3 boys and two girls. I found felt to be the easiest to work with when making finger puppets.
