so lately it’s been a bit challenging keeping sadie entertained (quietly) during church. we bring books for her to look at, but beyond that, i’m stumped.
i don’t really want to bring her stuffed animals. they are quiet, but really she just tosses them around. i don’t really want a pile of poor defenseless animals behind our pew every week. so…hand puppets! i had a totally different idea of what i wanted when i started, but then it morphed into these nature inspired “puppets”.
i decided to use my trusty hot glue gun, in the sake of saving time. i’m not gonna lie, i burned my fingers more than once. (alright, five times) i sewed the finger pockets and cut around them with my pinking shears, and then free-handed the nature shapes. i just used the cheap craft felt, since i have every color under the rainbow (ha, ha) sitting around here. (except white…???) btw, that dag nab rainbow was the reason i have burned fingertips. grumble grumble. the things we do for our kids.
