M printed out the Arthur birthday hat for E to color while she spent the day at his office. She took a lunch bag, some graph paper and colored pencils and made a whole puppet inspired by the hat. Later she added the necklace and bracelet. I especially like the way his/her hands are clearly “left” and “right” with the opposite thumbs, and the feet turn outward with laces and grommets.
