Step 2: Print, then Gather Your Supplies
Print the puppet onto card stock instead of regular printer paper. Card stock will make it sturdier so your child will be able to play with them again and again. After printing, gather all the supplies you need and you’ll be ready to go!
Step 3 – Option 1: Color Your Own Unicorn Finger Puppet Printable
I drew the unicorn finger puppet so that it prints in plain black and white.
Crafts like this one are great for practicing fine motor skills via cutting and coloring. Even after the coloring and assembly has been completed, these printable puppet will become part of additional creative play as the children can make up stories and simple dramatics as they use it.
Encourage your child to add color and decorate the unicorn any way he or she chooses. Your kids could use crayons, markers, tissue paper, glitter glue, or watercolor paints! Acrylic jewels or beads would also be a beautiful accent.
Step 3 – Option 2: Leave the Unicorn Finger Puppet Printable White
Step 4: Cut
Cut around the outside edge of the Unicorn. Use a hole punch to make a hole in the oval areas. Then, using the very tip of your scissors, cut the paper inside the oval away so that your child can easily insert the fingers.
Step 5: Decorate the Tail, Mane and Forelock
Cut short pieces of the colorful scrap yarn and glue them to all the areas where a horse would have hair; the mane, tail, and forelock. I took the photo before I got to the forelock! As you can see, I added flat pieces of ribbon in with the yarn.
Step 6: Glue Ribbon to Tail and Head
Continue to decorate the animal by gluing curled ribbon to the tail and head. Gently pull it out so that it’s not too curly and hangs just right. I like the way the curls bounce! I also added 2 small pom-poms. Feel free to add whatever else you think will make your Unicorn look magical! (like GLITTER!!!)
