Nature is already full of insects and other microscopic creatures, so let’s recreate these adorable animals by creating our own playable set.
We’ve never met a kid who doesn’t like critters, or at least some of them. For this reason alone, we knew this set of finger puppets would be very exciting (why not combine them with our other printable insect puppets)!
Each page has two different finger puppets for a total of 6 errors. There are butterflies, ants, grasshoppers, bees, ladybugs and spiders.
These finger puppets are super easy to assemble and are perfect as decorations inside and outside your home at the end of playtime.
We make sure they fit all finger sizes because for each doll you can simply cut the “body part” to fit the little or big finger (so they can be made by kids, parents, teachers, think about it later) time ).

Make a Printable Bug Finger Puppet
what do you need:
- Our printable template (get it at the end of this tutorial)
- Heavier printer paper (plain paper will work too, but heavier paper will make the doll last longer)
- coloring supplies
- A pair of scissors
- Optional clothespins
Follow these step-by-step instructions
Print All Bugs Printable Finger Puppets or choose the insect puppets you want to make; you’ll find printable craft templates at the end of this tutorial.
Color all parts of the insect with your favorite dye (we love marking). We’ll show you how to make a bee doll, but the steps are very similar for any other insect in this printable package.
You can choose between 4 body circumferences, depending on the size of your fingers, choose the circumference that best suits you.
Color up to the first dashed line on the body that you can color in the model or up to a finger-sized dashed line. We colored the body to the second dotted line to accommodate the slightly thicker fingers.
Cut out all parts of the finger puppet. As shown in the image below, we cut the body at the second dotted line to make the bee’s body thicker.
Apply some glue to the “GLUE” area of the head and hold it firmly together. We use clothespins.
Time to glue the insect body. During this step, you can still perfectly contour the body to fit your fingers.
Give the glue time to dry.
Now all you need to do is connect the body and head of the insect: use the “HEAD AND BODY CONNECTION” paper and stick it on the “tube” of the body.
Also put glue on the other part of the “link” and stick the insect’s head on it.
Press firmly with your fingers or use small tweezers.
Your printable finger puppet is ready!
Have fun making all the critters and have fun!

Nature is already teeming with all kinds of insects and other miniature creatures, so let’s emulate these adorable animals by creating our own playable set.
We have never met a child who wouldn’t like insects, or at least some of them. For that reason alone, we know this pack of finger puppets will be really exciting (and why not pair them with our other printable insect puppets)!
There are two different finger puppet models on each page, totaling 6 bugs. There is a butterfly, an ant, a grasshopper, a bee, a ladybug and a spider.
These finger puppets are a great easy-to-assemble paper toy and they’ll be perfect as a decoration inside or outside your home when playtime is over.
We’ve made sure they’ll fit fingers of all sizes, because with each puppet you can just cut the “body” part to fit small or big fingers (so they can be made by/for children, parents, teachers – just think of story time).

Print out all of the Bugs printable finger puppets or choose the bug puppet you want to make – you’ll find the printable craft template at the end of this tutorial.
Color in all the insect parts with your favorite coloring supplies (we love markers). We’ll show you how to make a bee puppet, but the steps are pretty similar for any other bug in this printable pack.
You can choose from 4 body perimeters, depending on the size of the fingers, choose the perimeter that suits you best.
Color the body up to the first dotted line, you can color the model or just up to the dotted line which is the size of the finger. We colored the body up to the second dotted line, to accommodate a slightly thicker finger.
Cut out all the parts of your finger puppet. As shown in the image below, we cut the body at the second dotted line to make the bee body thicker.
Apply some glue to the “GLUE” area of the head and hold it firmly together. We used a clothespin.
It’s time to glue the body of an insect. In this step, you can still adjust the perimeter of the body to fit your finger perfectly.
Give it time for the glue to dry.
What you need to do now is to connect an insect’s body and head – use the “HEAD & BODY LINK” piece of paper and glue it into the “tube” of the body.
Also apply glue to the other part of the “link” and stick the head of the insect on it.
Press firmly with your fingers or use a small clothespin to do the trick.
Your printable finger puppet is complete!
Have fun creating all the bugs and have fun playing!
