Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer Finger Puppets

When I like something, I naturally tend to repeat it several times…

I made some more glove puppets.
This time I made them to fit the song “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer.”
Both my boys were practicing to sing “Rudoph” for our church Christmas program and my oldest, Owen, sang it for his school program {I don’t know how we lucked out with that one}, so I thought it would be fun to have some glove finger puppets to help them practice.
These gloves really helped my three year old learn the words…even though he didn’t actually sing on stage. :) After the rehearsal for our church Christmas program, he kept saying, “but I didn’t have my gloves!”
It’s got all of the reindeer for the beginning of the song.
“You know Dasher, and Dancer, and Prancer and Vixen…
…Comet, and Cupid, and Donner, and Blitzen..”
and the star of the song: Rudolph.
Santa is just this sleigh for now. I had plans on adding a Santa figure but couldn’t decide on how to best do it…maybe next year.  :)
For my other glove puppets I had my kids help me more. For these though I just snipped away while I watched TV at night after bedtime. As a template for the felt cut outs, I searched google images. Word clip art can be helpful as well.
Then I cut them out and hot glued them to the fingers of the gloves.
Easy, festive, fun, and helps keep little hands busy.
All much needed things this time of year. :)
Hope you have a lovely, festive weekend!
