FloraCraft® Foam:
2 – 1″ or 1.5″ balls
1 – block (optional)

Other Materials:
1 – 3″ piece of chenille stem
1 – pair wiggle eyes
Felt scraps
Craft materials such as eyelash curls, pom-poms, yarn
Craft glue or low-temp glue gun and glue sticks
Wooden skewers or toothpicks
Acrylic or water-based paint (optional)
Craft paint brush


  1. If desired, paint foam balls . Push a skewer into the balls to hold
    while painting; place skewers in a block of foam to hold while balls dry.
  2. Shape 3″ piece of chenille stem into a “U”. Dip ends in glue and insert U shape
    into two balls so U shape will slip under the wearer’s middle finger while the
    two balls sit on top of the hand to form the puppet’s eyes. (1″ balls work best
    for smaller hands.)
  3. Cut felt shapes for eyes; glue wiggle eyes to felt or attach wiggle eyes directly
    on plastic foam balls. Glue on other features such as pom-poms and eyelash
    curls, or felt ears and eyelids.
  4. Dab glue onto foam and use a skewer to push materials such as yarn into
    the foam for hair. Insert chenille stems into foam for antennae or eye lashes.
    For antennae, gently curve chenille stems and glue pom-poms onto the tips
    of shaped chenille stems; dip in glue and insert into foam.
  5. Modify the finger puppet instructions to create a finger friend that resembles
    your school mascot, favorite pet or other character. Buttons, sequins or glitter
    are other objects that might inspire your creativity.
