How to Make the Unicorn Finger Puppets
Ready to make your own unicorn puppets? Our templates come in two version. A colorful version.
And a printer-friendly black and white version. This one is perfect for kids to color in their own unicorns.
Step 1: Choose Your Unicorn Finger Puppet Version
Before you begin, decide which version of the unicorn finger puppet you’d like to create.
The colored version is vibrant and ready-to-use, perfect for those who want to dive right into playing with their new magical friends.
On the other hand, the black & white version offers a blank canvas for you to personalize, allowing you to unleash your creativity and make your unicorn uniquely yours.
Step 2: Print the Template
Once you’ve chosen your preferred version, download the printable template.
For best results and durability, we recommend printing the template on cardstock or thick paper.
This will ensure that your unicorn finger puppets can withstand hours of playtime and fun.
Step 3: Cut Out the Unicorn Finger Puppets
Next, carefully cut out the unicorn finger puppet shape along the solid lines using scissors.
Remember to take your time and be precise with your cuts.
For younger children, adult supervision is recommended during this step to ensure safety.
Step 4: Customize Your Black & White Unicorn Finger Puppet (Optional)
If you’ve chosen the black & white version, now is the time to let your imagination run wild!
Use coloring materials like markers, colored pencils, or glitter to decorate your unicorn finger puppet.
You can even add stickers, gems, or other embellishments to make your unicorn truly one-of-a-kind.
Step 5: Cut Out the Finger Holes
With your unicorn finger puppet cut out and customized, it’s time to create the finger holes.
Carefully cut out the four small circles on the bottom of the puppet, where your fingers will act as the unicorn’s legs.
We suggest starting with smaller holes and adjusting as needed for a perfect fit.
Remember, it’s easier to make the holes larger if needed, but you can’t easily make them smaller again.
Step 6: Put Your Fingers Through the Holes and Start Playing
Now that your unicorn finger puppet is complete, it’s time to bring it to life! Insert your fingers through the four holes at the bottom of the puppet so that your fingers act as the unicorn’s legs.
Once your fingers are comfortably in place, you can make your unicorn “stand” and start moving it around.
Let your imagination run wild as you create various play scenarios with your new unicorn friend.
You can have your unicorn embark on magical adventures, meet other mystical creatures, or even save the day!
