I'm sensing a monkey theme in your crafts! I'm guessing either your child loves monkeys or he's a "little monkey" himself. Either way, I love it and am so impressed with how well these animal crafts come out! I can't draw at all, but this looks so easy that it really would look like a monkey even with my lack of art skills. I think a cat would be cute too :)

I understand. I'm not the greatest when it comes to artistic skills, but I have found things that I (we) can do, so I figure everyone can do them. wink

And, I have a cat coming up. Hopefully soon. Maybe after the Christmas season.
