Magnetic Animal Bookmark-Puppets D.I.Y.

by Claire


Last month we crafted several adorable Origami Finger Puppets. Today we hot glued magnets inside of them to make Bookmark-Finger Puppets!  The magnets attract each other and hold the puppet firmly on the page to mark your place. How cool is that? 

If you are interested in making your own set you can find the origami instructions for the finger puppets here. 

Part 2 -  Hot glue a small magnet inside one of the puppets.

The total cost to make a set of 6 animals was under $1.30 or you can buy a set for $8 from  Vat19.

 Part 3 - Play with your new bookmark-puppet friend and find a good book to read!
 
 
 We found the idea for the Origami Finger Puppet on Martha Stewart Crafts for Kids Site and simply added the magnets.
 
Feel free to share your project photo's on our Facebook Page.  We would sure love to see them!
 
 Happy Reading!
