Finger puppet Easter crafts
Turn empty Cushelle tissue boxes into our fun finger puppets, making perfect Easter craft activities for kids on rainy days over the Easter holidays
Takes about 2 hours
What you’ll need
- Empty Cushelle toilet roll tubes
- Empty Cushelle facial tissue box
- Cushelle soft facial tissues
- Paint brush
- Black pen
- First, press down the sides of one end of each of the empty toilet rolls with your fingers.
- Then paint each toilet roll in a different colour – pink for the bunny, yellow for the chick and white for the lamb – and leave to dry.
- Next, cut open and flatten the empty tissue box with scissors.
- Draw some bunny ears, paws, chick’s wings and a beak on the cardboard and cut out.
- Now paint the different body parts and leave them to dry before sticking them to the painted toilet rolls.
- Next, tear up some soft Cushelle facial tissues and scrunch into small balls for the bunny’s paws, and large balls for the lamb’s ears, hair and body. Stick them in place with glue.
- Add some yellow feathers to the chick’s head with glue.
- Finally, use a black pen to add the facial features to the finger puppets.
