Tips for making the fox puppet above:
1. When you make the holes to thread your "arms" and "legs" through, you may have to work to get the hole to be the right size for the twine to go through. We used a pen to do this, but you can use whatever works best for you!
2. When you attach the fishing line from the popsicle sticks to the top of the body and the feet of the puppet, attach the fishing line to the feet first. Then, attach the fishing line to the top of the body (tp roll tube). You will want to make sure your fishing line is the right length so that when it is connected to your popsicle sticks, and to the top of the body, your fox's feet are able to naturally hang to the ground. You can always trim the fishing line and re-tape it if you need to!
3. You don't need to turn your fox into a puppet! You can skip adding the feet and the "strings" and just have a cute toilet paper roll fox to play with or use as a decoration!
