Pirate Finger Puppets

Yo ho ho! Look who arrived just in time for Talk Like a Pirate Day (Sept. 19th, 2012).
I was thinking I'd have it easy this year, just making puppets for one class (2nd grade).  But my 5th grader wanted them, too!  And they are already asking what is next...
Meanwhile, these hearties were well received by my son's second grade teacher...  I just love it when they get put to classroom use!
I've already covered our favorite pirate books in another post but we just discovered Melinda Long's sequel, "Pirates Don't Change Diapers."  David Shannon's entertaining drawings make this a must check out from your local library!
And also look for I Love My Pirate Papa, by Laura Leuck.  Kyle Stone's illustration are cute cute CUTE!  You don't have to be a pirate fanatic to fall in love with this book.. father and son lead us through plenty a pirate escapade aboard their ship to keep us entertained, laughing, and loving.  Watch for the little mice who help with the action!


  1. The pirates are adorable! I'm going to try to make a Pete the Cat puppet. I'll send a picture if they work out.

  4. Tried leaving a message, so do not know if it went through or not.
    Our Distinguished Young Women theme this year is pirates. These would be adorable to make for all the girls. I would love to have the pattern. Thank you, Sydney
