Thumbelina Craft - Part Two

The girls were happy playing with their Thumbelina, flower, pop-up puppets yesterday, but today, they thought it was time for Thumbelina to leave her flower. So, they turned the flowers upside down, and decided they'd make good skirts.

Of course, then it became apparent, that Mommy had forgotten about Thumbelina's arms.

We fixed that problem, by wrapping a small piece of green pipe cleaner around the middle of the craft stick.

Then, we added another small piece around the bottom of the craft stick, which we pushed up under the skirt, to keep it from falling down.

Now, Thumbelina is ready to wander the forest, or at least the living room, where I am happy to say, there are no toads, or moles, for her to worry about.

It's great to be a homeschooler.

How fun - I love the toys that can transform themselves at will.
