Finger Puppets!

I found these fun little finger puppets today and I think my students will love them!  They are 3 cute little bunnies that fit right on your fingertip.  I thought they would be fun for fingerplay songs and impromptu puppet shows that encourage creativity.  There might be a favorite book about bunnies where these will come in handy too.  Finger puppets help to develop finger coordination that is important for writing and cutting.  There is some bilateral hand use required too as the child works to get each puppet on a finger.  Anything that gets those little fingers working is a GOOD THING!
