All the spoon doll princesses, lined up in a row…
I forget the names the girls gave them. Should have written them down! Naomi’s is on the far right.
This was a harder craft than I anticipated, especially after my sister (who came at 10 o’clock! amazing!) suggested that braids might look wonderful on the dollies. All the girls wanted braids, none could do them herself; it took a while to get all that braiding done. There were also a few other steps that the girls couldn’t do alone – attaching the skirt, tying the bows, even beading the little jingle-bell necklace. Basically, all they could do was decorate the skirt and draw on the faces.
Anyway, that took about an hour longer than I anticipated, but… then came our next craft: a REAL princess isn’t afraid to get her hands a little dirty!
Here are the 4 egg-carton planters I made this morning – they each have a see-through plastic wrap window taped on top – so tight you can’t see them!
And here’s Naomi’s, filled, planted and watered.
Happy birthday to you! (she’s getting a real cake tonight – this was just the cupcake version)
