Making Different Animals (and People) from our Frog Pattern

It is so exciting to me when someone adapts one of my moving mouth animal puppet patterns. People are so creative!

Adapting Our Frog Pattern


Diane purchased our frog puppet pattern from our Etsy store. She cleverly adapted the pattern to make the characters shown in the photo for a skit based on the song The Lion Sleeps Tonight. She says, “Parrot was basically the same mouth, I just added a hook on the end. I placed card stock in the beak to help it keep it’s shape. For the monkeys and lion, I increased the height of the dome and made the top part of the mouth pattern taller and more rounded. I also placed card stock in the mouth to help keep the shape.”

I think they all are adorable but the sax player is just too cool!
