Wednesday Addams paper finger puppet

Wednesday Addams paper finger puppet

The Addams Family is a fictional family created by American cartoonist Charles Addams. and originally published in The New Yorker from the 1930s. Over the years we’ve watched many versions but of course we loved Tim Burton’s Netflix original, Wednesday, and binge watched the entire show in days. It was set at her new school, Nevermore Academy, where Wednesday Addams investigated a mysterious murder spree that plagued her parents 25 years before.

We can’t wait for Wednesday season 2 to drop sometime in 2024 but, with the spooky season coming up, we were inspired to make a Wednesday Addams paper finger puppet. We had so much fun we then made the whole Addams family too!

My Wednesday Addams paper finger puppet couldn’t be simpler to use.

1 First of all print out my Wednesday Addams paper finger puppet

2 There are 8 different pages in my free Halloween printable – WednesdayPugsleyMorticiaGomezLurchFesterGranny Frump and Ophelia. Choose your favourite or print all of them!

3 Colour the image with your favourite colouring pencils or pens and cut around the shape.

4 Then carefully fold the puppet along the fold lines (you may want to fold the sheet the first time before cutting the character out).

5 Cut out any extra pieces and the loops. Attach the loops to the back of the puppet using glue or sticky tape.

6 Enjoy your finger puppet! Make them dance, scream or act out your favourite moment from any of the Addams Family films!


I think my Wednesday Addams finger puppet makes a great activity for a Halloween party at home.

    Such a fun halloween craft and I love the Addams Family especially Wednesday. Although I don’t think my colouring in would look that good x
