Fall Leaf Finger Puppets

Fall Leaf Finger Puppets - CraftsbyAmanda.comFall seems to have come very quickly to our little town in southeast Wisconsin. One day it was summer and then all of a sudden it was fall! The leaves are changing, kids are back in school and the local sweet corn wagon has been replaced by the annual pumpkin wagon. So get the kids together and head outside to collect some of those falling leave to make these fun finger puppets!

    Hi Amanda,

    I love these cheeky little guys! I run an organisation specialising in family learning, working in the most disadvantaged communities in Hertfordshire, UK. I’m always telling parents that they don’t have to spend a lot of money on having fun and spending time with their children, and this lovely project illustrates that perfectly.

    I’m just writing to ask permission to use this picture on our website (www.clp.org.uk) with accompanying instructions to make this point. I would, of course, acknowledge you.

    Thanks for your kind consideration,

    Elizabeth :-)
