Waldorf store the other day had a felted apple with a hole in it for a wee felted mousy. Cost over $40 Undecided. Hey, I can make that!

Oooooh...NICE! I'd love something like that, but the pieces would get lost or the pets would have a party with it Sad

It's wonderful that not only did you save money, but you taught your son the concept of making instead of buying.  I also think it's great that you included him in the decision making process.  I'm sure this toy will mean much more to him in the future than a store bought one ever would.  Kudos for wonderful child rearing techniques (and saving money!).

P.S.--I love the finished product, by the way.  I just got too excited about good parenting to mention it    Cheesy

I would love to get one of those to play with and I'm 32, so I'm guessing a smaller kid would possibly love it even more!
BEAUTIFUL!

Edited to add: Gosh, I can't take my eyes off it, just have to say: The worm looks absolutely wicked (I like the worm better than the mouse - and the mouse is extremely cute too)!! Love at first sight!
