Flannel Friday: Penguin Finger Puppets

I am going to do a penguin storytime for the toddlers later in the year. I got this adorable rhyme from Storytime Katie's penguin storytime. I decided I needed two penguin finger puppets to go with it. I did a Google Image search for "felt penguin finger puppets" and found the perfect set with a free pattern online. Yay! To download the free pattern for these little guys, go to Fun Family Crafts and click on the instruction link below the picture. These are quick and easy to make, so I made these puppets at home for my niece's second birthday and bought her Emma Dodd's I am Small to go with the rhyme and puppets.

Two Little Penguins
Two little penguins sitting on ice. (hold up two fingers)
One bows once, the other bows twice. (make fingers bow)
Waddle little penguins. Waddle away. (put fingers behind back)
Come back penguins. Time to play! (bring fingers to front)


  1. Oh these are so cute!! I'm almost tempted to make a set for all the kids to use too except I'd have to make 100 and that's a lot.....but they sure are cute.

  2. Very cute! I always do a penguin storytime in January and these will be a sweet addition. Thank you for sharing and linking the templates. They are added to my TBM pile.

    I have had so much fun making some ocean animal finger puppets that I am creating a Finger Puppet Blog Hop on my blog. I hope you will stop by and link up your post. I would love to have your penguins represented in the blog hop. They are just so dang cute!

    I hope you have a relaxing weekend!

  3. This is adorable. I have a hand puppet with two penguins on an iceberg. This will work perfect!

  4. Love it. I am definitely copying this one!
