You can make the finger puppets and invent some songs for them to perform. Who’s going to be the star of the show? You decide!

You will need:

  1. Scissors
  2. Glue
  3. Lots of colouring pencils
  4. The printed template (see below)

What the puppets look like is up to you! You could colour them in their normal colours, or you could draw some clothes on them to make them look like real rock stars…

Before you start, make sure you get an adult to help you!
