Jumping Jack with Butterfly Net

A Jumping Jack seems appropriate for today's prompt!
Click here to purchase one of my Jumping Jacks. If you would like to illustrate your own Jumping Jack download my template here.
There are the assembly instructions: Copy the jumping jack pattern onto card stock. Cut out your pattern. Using a small hole punch, punch holes in the dots indicated on the pattern. You will need eight decorative brads or small brass fasteners. Use your brads to connect limbs at the shoulders, elbows, hips and knees as indicated on the diagram. The string that creates the movement must be added to your assembled figure. Tie a light weight string between the holes that you have already created between “A” and “B” and one between “C” and “D. They should be neither too tight or too slack. Your operating string should now be attached. It should be tied tightly at the center of “A” and “B” and the center of “C and D” and extend to about the knee level. Use crayons or colored pencils to decorate your Jumping Jack.
