    Spread the love

    To make these adorable Christmas puppets, just print the template and you are ready to go. The best thing about puppets is that they are not just fun to make, but they are even more fun to play with. Create your own stories and present a puppet show to your friends and family. And finger puppets are a great thing to take with you on a trip, or even to a restaurant to keep the kids occupied while waiting for the food to arrive.
