As with all the finger puppets in this series (check out our Farm Animals and our Jungle Animals), making these finger puppets is really VERY EASY!!!

There is a video on autoplay, that shows you how to make the Snake Paper Puppet! The steps required are the same!

All you need to do, to assemble this cute farm animal puppets, is:

  • Print your favourite occupations out
  • Color them in
  • Cut out carefully
  • Fold the mouth part in 3 to create the mouth cavity
  • Cut out the two strips for your fingers
  • Glue the finger strips in place

Make one. Make them all. A fun collectible Nativity Craft to enjoy in the classroom or at home.
