I think making a jumping jack doll is a great craft project. Especially a cute kitty like this one! All you need is a ball of string and a couple of split pins. Push the pieces out. Make holes in the places shown. Then attach the legs with the string and split pins. Pull on the string and her paws will dance to your rhythm.
This creation is from Daphne’s Diary number 6. You can buy this edition in the webshop.
