PopEye the Stick Man

Meet PopEye the Stick Man
no relation to spinach sucking sailors

Today we had a BIG mess on the table of all our random arts and crafts supplies.  My 4 yo daughter and I decided to make a little puppet toy for her baby cousin when we found this red Popsicle stick and one big googly eye....hence the name....Popeye.....
J glued the eye on and then we were looking around out stash for some hair...hmmm..this blue octopus foam sticker turned upsidown looked fun and then all we needed was our pipe cleaners.  

He makes a really fun pet

Popeye loves the outdoors


He knows how to drive


He's popular with the ladies


 He's housetrained


 He's on top of the fresh breath thing


And he's very.....


studious....


He can teach your kids all about the number 8


Now he will make a very low maintence first pet for our baby belly dancing Rainbow Gotters.  J says her mommy and daddy will play peek-a-boo with him while Rainbow Gotters is in the crib and do puppet shows for her.

Who is Rainbow Gotters? (my newborn niece)  And yes she belly dances...

Super cute! Kids always seem to have fun with the toys they make themselves. My son loves to play in empty boxes for example. Sometimes I wonder why I even bother buying toys at the store! ;)
