Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

Step 1:

First things first you will need a jewelry box or a little box that you won't need again.

Step 2:

Then get your scissors and start cutting a hole that will fit your middle finger snug but not too tight when you put your finger through.

Step 3:

For this step you will need the soft cushion that came in the jewelry box and cut a hole in the cushion that matches the box and put it in the box matching the hole up to the other similar hole. If you want the finger to look more creepy put a little ketchup right above the hole.

Step 4:

Put your finger in.

Step 5:

To make your finger look very creepy put a little dark makeup on it so it won't be so obvious its yours. Lastly go up to one of your friends and tell 'em you bought this cool finger at the halloween shop tell them it really feels real once they touch it move it a bit to freak them out!

    Hahaha my dad got me with this about 20 years ago. Then he taught me and I showed all my friends. (I was 7) I had completely forgot about this timeless prank. Thanks for bringing back the memories.
