Minifigure Sticker Finger Friends

Before we watched The Lego Movie I set the younger children up with finger-sized minifigure stickers (just pictures of The Lego Movie minifigures I pulled off of Amazon, copied to a single page in Paint, printed onto sticker paper as a 5''x7'' picture - so they'd be small, and cut out)... they could pick five each... stick to their fingers... sort of finger puppets.

During the movie, when any of their characters appeared on screen, they could act along - or just cheer, with their little finger friends.  And, after the movie, when they got tired of finger puppets, they could stick them down onto sheets of blank paper and draw their own story around them.

Note: This sort of activity is not suitable for toddlers or babies.  Printable stickers come off easily and might be swallowed by young children sucking on their fingers.

Ha ha ha ha, I can just imagine my 2 year old nephew with this activity now that you say that in the bottom.

My kids would love it if I did this.

I am "stuck" on this idea! (Hee! Hee!)

This is super fun, but your kids are patient to have something on their fingers for this long. Anna is a compulsive finger picker and would have taken them off 5 minutes later, tops! She can't even stand rings on her fingers,
