Shhh.... don't tell Little Lady but I finished some of her Christmas gifts already!
She loves finger puppets like the monkey and alligator set I made earlier this year. She carries them around all the time and holds out her sweet little finger for us to put a puppet on.
With that love in mind, I set out to make some sensory finger puppets for her.
Here is the jungle set:
It includes a monkey with a bumpy (burlap) nose, a lion with a fuzzy (yarn) mane, a bright bird with a silky (satin from my bridesmaid's dresses!) breast, an elephant with a rough (vinyl) trunk, and a giraffe with fuzzy (chenille stem) horns. (Are they called horns, after all?)
Here is the barn animal set:
It includes a horse with a lovely mane (craft hair), a pig with a round snout (button), a cow with many spots (heavy vinyl), a rooster with a silly beak (craft foam), and a sheep with soft wool (fluffy, white fabric).
I know Little Lady will really love these.
