    This origami model is a Traditional design. For this finger puppet, it would be nice to use paper that has a white side and a colored side, but if not, your puppet will still work fine!

    The paper needs to be square, so ensure you have the right type of paper on hand.

    This origami puppet looks like a cute cat, but you can make other animal faces too, such as a bat or dog, by drawing a different face, or folding the ears differently. For a fun craft activity for kids, you can decorate these with...MORE glitter, sequins, and ribbons!
