Johnny spied me looking at this ikat bag post, and just had to make some peg dolls of his own. Lily thought she should too. I had two peg dolls sitting in the craft closet for just such an emergency, so I pulled those out and they got to work. Lily was beyond thrilled to use a Sharpie for the first time ever.
Can you see the face Johnny drew on his? They each decorated their dolls in their favorite color – pink for Lily and green for Johnny.
Don’t you love Lily’s excitement over her completed doll?! That’s pizza on her hands and face – apparently I forgot to clean her up from dinner before handing over the Sharpie pen.
We cobbled together a couple of houses for the peg dolls using cardboard boxes. The band-aid on Johnny’s chin is just from a bump; he’s in that “band-aids are magical” phase.
We only had two peg dolls available, but Emma was okay with that. She has decorated peg dolls before (see here and here), and she was content to paint this bird feeder she received as a birthday gift from a friend.
She was also kind enough to use her leftover paints to decorate Johnny’s peg doll house for him. Emma’s paint job reminds me of the Hundertwasserhaus in Vienna!
