For younger children there are fairy finger puppets to be made. You will need:
- colouring pencils
- children’s scissors or an adult to help cut out your puppet
- a glue stick
- a lollipop stick – this is optional as they will also fit on the end of a finger

Your little ones can enjoy making the characters from The Fairy in the Kettle series or create their very own.
There are some finished puppets in the pictures below, taken during one of my Waterstones events.
I can take no credit for these, the template is widely available on the internet and it was the lovely Carmen at Waterstones in Aberdeen that first introduced me to them. But, they have been such a hit and have been enjoyed by so many little fairy fans at my events that I just had to include them here.
