  2. Add Velcro and Googly Eyes
    You will need to use only the hooked side of the hook and loop fasteners, as they will hold nicely to the felt and still be easy to remove. Stick one piece to the underside of each leg and to the base of the tail. Glue wiggle eyes to the head as shown. Let dry.
  3. Make Tadpole
    Stick the tail to the body first to make a tadpole.
