Fun Foam Pokemon Party Decorations

I've said before that I can't draw or paint, and it's true, I can't. I really never progressed much past stick figures. I had a bit of a craft fail today, when I was trying to paint the features on some decorations for my son's party. They turned out pretty awful.
I trashed them, and started over using craft foam, which is somehow more forgiving. I ended up with these. (Jigglypuff and Oddish, for those of you who don't eat, sleep, and breathe Pokemon like we do...) L tried taking them away to play with them, so I took that as a thumbs up. You could adapt this to all kinds of characters, and an older kid, who was more adept with the scissors could make their own.

P.S. I'm planning on making a few more, and then positioning them in the backyard, as if they're in their own "habitat." The kids are going to be hunting for Pokemon cards and eggs, and I thought these would be cute in that area.)

P.P.S. Jigglypuff's feet are sort of out of scale. They're huge. Whatever. My kids are young enough to not notice the difference. :)
