One of the songs that I can't wait to sing with Oliver J. is about a lion.
Leo the lion to be exact. And his jaws are big and wide.
So when one of the ward members had a lion puppet for her daughter, my creative juices started flowing...and then I forgot about it all. That was a year ago.
Last month I was browsing a craft blog and found the tutorial for the exact lion puppet. Since I had plenty of felt leftover from the package I bought for the fishing set, I printed out the pattern and got started.
This puppet was free to me.
Now Oliver J. and I will have a fun prop to help us sing about the King of the Jungle.
Until then I will toss it in my box labeled "future Ollie gift ideas" and call it good.
