My daughter loves the book 5 little pumpkins. Last year she was given the book by our neighbor Joanne and she reads it all year round.
I remember this story from when I was a child and it is so much fun for Halloween. So I decided to make these finger puppet gloves after seeing similar ones on Pinterest.
I love this craft because I get to interact with my daughter when reading her favorite book since I made a glove for her and for me.
What you need:
To make this all you need is an adult glove and a child glove (I bought mine at the local dollar tree), construction paper, hot glue, a sharpie marker and colored popsicle craft sticks.
Cut out 5 pumpkins big enough to fit on each finger per glove. I made mine a little bit bigger then the ones I made for my daughters glove.
Using your Sharpie make the cute faces on the pumpkins.
Hot glue the pumpkins onto the glove. As well as the popsicle craft sticks to make a gate (shown below).
I also made a cute little sign to put on the gate.
Read the book with your child and have fun. My daughter loved her glove so much you can see it on her face below. I think I might of found a way for her to love reading the story even more. What do you think?
If you do not have the book here is the story that I got from 4shared.com <—– click here
