I was going through my fabric stash and discovered a small amount of assorted felt squares I had leftover from a Christmas project. Making finger puppets requires very few supplies and it’s a great indoor activity to do with the kids.

We are pretty big Despicable Me fans, especially those ridiculous minions. So what better minion craft than some fun felt finger puppets?

Supplies Needed for Minions Finger Puppets

To make 5 youth-sized minion finger puppets you’ll need:

  • Puppet body – 6” x 8” scrap of yellow felt (a similar weight fabric can be used as a substitute to felt)
  • Facial features and attire – Small scraps of assorted colours of felt: navy, grey, black, white
  • Easter-themed accessories – Small scraps of assorted colours of felt : pink, brown, blue, purple
  • Googly eyes – assorted sizes
  • All purpose white glue or felt glue
  • Scissors
  • Super Silly Minions Finger Puppet template

How to Make Silly Minion Finger Puppets

Prepare work space for cutting and glueing and print off the free printable minion template.

Begin by cutting your felt scraps using the finger puppet template guide: Y = yellow; N = navy; G = grey; B = black; W = white; P = pink

Glue the facial features and attire to top layer of the finger puppet. Press lightly and let dry.

Glue googley eyes to center of goggles. Press lightly and let dry. Our minion craft is coming together!

Turn over the front of the minion finger puppet. Glue the back (base layer) to the backside of the front layer by spreading a thin, even line of glue along outer edge of base layer. Lightly press the top layer (right side up) onto base layer. Clean away any excess glue and let dry.

Finally, play with you new Minion finger puppets! These cuties have some adorable bunny ears making them perfect for Easter.
