oh LaLa, thank you! I love how the mouth is made! We have done sock puppets, but I had never figured out how to do a mouth.
Emily, btw I think making a puppet "kit" to give to Owen is a great idea. I did this last year with my dd, except, my kit was felt people (just cut people shapes out of brown, tan, and white felt}, then included in a shoebox yarn hair, google eyes, buttons, scrap material for clothes, ect. She LOVED it, she is very crafty even at 4! I think they have more fun when they are in on the creating anyway! Have fun!
