If you chose the black & white set, color the circus characters.
Cut out each circus character along the dotted lines.
4Cut a strip of paper.
Cut out a ½-inch wide strip of paper that is long enough to go around the top portion of your finger (approximate length is around 1½ to 2 inches).
5Glue the ends together.
Glue the ends of the paper strip together to form a band. The band should fit on the top portion of your finger but should also slide easily in and out of your finger.
6Glue the band.
Glue the paper band at the back of a circus character to complete a finger puppet.
7Wear the puppet.
Wait for the glue to dry before wearing the puppet on your finger.
8Make more finger puppets.
Make as many circus finger puppets as you like. Use them for your circus-themed lessons, finger plays, story reading, and other circus-themed activities.
Make standing circus characters.
After you have enjoyed learning and playing with the circus finger puppets, turn them into mini paper dolls by removing the paper band at the back and gluing an L-shaped bottom tab at the back of each circus character.
