Right now I'm working on mouse finger puppets. The first one is an archer mouse that's gotten rave reviews so far and I'm not even done with it yet. Think Robin Hood only with a tail and a beady nose.
I still want to make some big mouth puppets this year. I went to Walmart to look for the thin foam to put inside the head, and to my surprise they have all but removed their craft dept. So I'll have to get it at Joann's after all.
