the story of: alice puppets and next month


I had very good intentions of having pretty pictures of some printable finger puppets for you. But guess what? It's the last day of May, the last day for this month's story...and I have no paper that will work in my printer! Shocking, I tell you. So we're going to pretend there are photos.
Curiouser Puppets
Here we have printable finger puppets so you can tell the story of Alice in Wonderland! What you see might not look exactly like a finger puppet though, and this is where we pretend to have photos.

Print these puppets on card stock, then cut around the characters.

Cut strips of card stock, and make them into loops that fit loosely around your fingers. They could even be large enough for two fingers, especially for some of the wider characters.

Tape the loops onto the backs of the cut-outs. The lower third area is probably best for most, although on Alice, the middle is better.

Slide them on your fingers and tell the story! Of course, these are rather versatile, so I'm sure you'll find some other fun things to use the character cut outs for too.

Were you able to picture it without the pictures? I hope so. I am sorry about running out of supplies here...

Download the puppet PDF, and then...

Get ready for June!


Next month's story was chosen by my sister Anna, and I think it's going to present some fun discussion. And if I get my act together, a cute puppet too!

For now, you can add this story to your desktop! There's a one-size-fits-all calendar desktop in JPG or PNG. Be sure to set your computer to have it fill the screen.

Happy last day of May!

UPDATE: If you downloaded the puppets and they wouldn't print, please download again. I've updated the file to work properly now. Sorry about that!
