When I was really young I remember sitting in the dentist chair and to keep us occupied the dentist would give us these little piggies to play with while we were there. When I became a mother I made this roll of "quiet people" for my children to play with but they only got to play with it at the doctors office or during church or anywhere I needed them to stay very quiet.
I used to keep the roll with me in my purse. When I brought them out I reminded my children that these people have no mouth so they were very quiet. (that was about 13 years ago...I could never sell them today.)
I think they turned out pretty cute and I did the entire project in about 1 hour. Total cost for me to make about $6.00 each...Maybe you will feel inspired to make your own memory for your kids to play with...cloth or wood :o)
