PUPPET THEATER part 1 DIY felt puppets

I can’t get over these fun and exciting DIY puppets. My kids love Little Einsteins and Octonauts but many of the toys are either sold in the UK or no longer available. What an inventive way to have these characters at home. Thank you Pinterested Parent!

And I’ll say it again, they really should sell their products at Disney!

We enjoy this with a jalapeño wrap from Trader Joes.
