How to make these snake finger puppets
1. Print your favorite snakes or create your own. If you want to make the whole template smaller, choose ‘scale’ in the print options and adjust the percentage a tiny bit. Plain light weight paper works well. Heavy weight paper is not ideal for this puppet as the snake body likes to be flexible! Cut along the outlines.
2. Glue the sides of the snake’s face as in the photo to form a 3D head. Wrap the side tabs into rings and glue to fix. Your finger should fit loosely inside these rings.
That’s it. Easy enough?
Now give your snake a name, wear it on your finger and go slithering around or scaring other people! You can play with twisting the tail too, have a go!
