Nature is already full of all kinds of insects and other miniature creatures, so let’s imitate these adorable animals by creating our own playable set.

We have never met a child who wouldn’t like insects, or at least some of them. For that reason alone, we know this pack of finger puppets will be really exciting (and why not pair them with our other printable insect puppets)!

There are two different finger puppet designs on each page, totaling 6 bugs. There is a butterfly, an ant, a grasshopper, a bee, a ladybug and a spider.

These finger puppets are a great easy-to-assemble paper toy and they’ll be perfect as a decoration inside or outside your home when playtime is over.

We’ve made sure they fit fingers of all sizes, because with each puppet you can simply cut the “body” part to fit small or large fingers (so they can be made by/ for children, parents, teachers – just think of story time).

Ready to make your bugs? Let’s start!

How to make the Bugs printable finger puppets

What do you need:

  • our printable template (grab it at the end of this tutorial)
  • heavier print paper (plain paper will also work, but heavier ones make the puppets last longer)
  • coloring supplies
  • the scissors
  • glue
  • optional clothes pegs

Printable Bugs Finger Puppet Crafts for Kids

Follow these step-by-step instructions

Print out all of the Bugs printable finger puppets or choose the bug puppet you want to make – you’ll find the printable DIY template at the end of this tutorial.

Color in all parts of the insect with your favorite coloring supplies (we love markers). We’ll show you how to make a bee puppet, but the steps are pretty similar for any other bug in this printable pack.

You can choose from 4 body perimeters, depending on the size of the fingers, choose the perimeter that suits you best.

Color the body up to the first dotted line, you can color the model or just up to the dotted line which is the finger size. We’ve colored the body up to the second dotted line, to accommodate a slightly thicker finger.

Cut out all the parts of your finger puppet. As shown in the image below, we cut the body at the second dotted line to make the body of the bee thicker.

Apply glue to the “GLUE” area of ​​the head and hold it firmly together. We used a clothespin.

It’s time to glue the body of an insect. In this step, you can still adjust the perimeter of the body to fit your finger perfectly.

Give it time for the glue to dry.

What you need to do now is to connect an insect’s body and head – use the “HEAD & BODY LINK” piece of paper and glue it into the “tube” of the body.

Also apply glue to the other part of the “link” and stick the head of the insect on it.

Press firmly with your fingers or use a small clothespin to go around.

Your printable finger puppet is complete!

Have fun creating all the bugs and have fun playing!
