Dr. Seuss Finger Puppets

If you have many children that will need help, have a few work on a few Dr Seuss coloring pages so you can focus on the others. This is what you will need to make these:

  • 1 Toilet Paper Roll
  • Orange & Yellow Craft Foam
  • Googly eyes (or white paper)
  • Pink pom pom
  • Yellow Popsicle stick
  • Glue (a hot glue gun will work best, but tacky glue is what we used)
  • Scissors
  • Marker
  1. Cut the toilet paper roll in half. Set aside one half. Curl the other half up and glue at the seam. Hold until the glue starts to set.
