My kids asked for a puppet to play with. They wanted to be able to take it with them when they were doing everything. This is a fairly easy puppet to make that can be washed when it gets to do too much playing. You can also make it whatever colors you'd like, so let your imagination run wild. It's large enough to fit an adults hand as well as a childs hand.
