  1. I enjoyed the material here and found it inspirational. Have made the jonah inside the whale puppet but not sure how you put your hands to make it work

      After you’ve completed the puppet, there should be 2 loops formed. Place your thumb in the lower loop and your 4 fingers in the upper loop.
