I love finger puppets. Not only are they the perfect size for little fingers and encourage hours of imaginative play but they are quick little projects, perfect for squeezing in the limited free moments in my busy day. You can make finger puppets as simple or as detailed as you like and even make a no-sew version by switching out the stitching for some felt glue.

Blogland is full of inspiration for toys to create for almost every Holiday. Here are a few free patterns to get you started with some Halloween craftiness. These little guys make an excellent alternative to the traditional treat bag filler too!
