Down at the bottom of the art bin we found some old dried up markers. I love creating craft projects and toys from garbage, packaging and containers that would normally go straight to the dump.
These little finger puppet people were made from old dried up marker caps, some yarn, masking tape and glue. Somehow those markers are always getting separated from their caps and drying out! The boys really like to wiggle their fingers and get their hair flapping, making it pretty hard to photograph!
It’s also pretty fun to start with really long hair and give them hair dews and haircuts!
We used the colored masking tape that we used in this project awhile back but plain old masking tape is just as fun. Oh, and yes, I did hide that fancy pretty washi tape and now can NOT remember where I put it!
We are working on another variation of this that we cant wait to share next week!
