Wiggly Eye Hand Puppet
Turn your hand into a colorful bird puppet, using Wiggly Eyes and just a few other craft materials. Paint and decorate both your hands or have a friend make one too and put on a performance!
Step 1. Gather your supplies.
Place a yellow Fuzzy Stick between your (2) middle fingers on your left hand, as shown. Tip: if you are left handed, you might want to decorate your right hand.
Wrap each end of the Fuzzy Stick once around each of your (2) fingers and back up, as shown.
When you have completed Step 3, both ends of the Fuzzy Stick will stick up, as shown. The Fuzzy Stick will be securely looped around your fingers, but should be able to slide off your hand.
After sliding the Fuzzy Stick off your hand, gently roll the ends between your fingers to create (2) small coils.
Glue the Wiggly Eyes to each of the coils and let dry.
Before moving to the next step, slide the yellow Fuzzy Stick piece back on your hand to make sure that is fits comfortably with the eyes attached.
Remove the yellow Fuzzy Stick piece and paint your hand with Face Paint. Tip: don’t forget to paint your palm as the bird’s mouth. When you open your hand, people will be able to see your palm. We painted our palm red.
To create the feathers for your puppet, wrap a blue Fuzzy Stick around the palm of your hand, and twist to secure. The Fuzzy Stick should come across your knuckles. Curl each end of the Fuzzy Stick. Tip: you might need the assistance of a friend for this step.
Repeat Step 9 with 2 more Fuzzy Sticks in different colors.
Slide the yellow Fuzzy Stick piece back on your fingers to finish your puppet.
