Have you’ve seen the wooden peg dolls? They are all over the internet and Pinterest. I could spend hours looking on Pinterest to see what people make with them.
We have a quite a few ourselves. We’ve been making them for quite a few years now and every time we come up with something else. We always have a box with extra ones, new ones, so they are ready for becoming someone special.
I got this book a while back. It lays around in the house, here and there, always being looked at for inspiration.
We use watercolors, Sharpies, acrylic paints, felt, fabric, paper, pipe cleaners, markers… Anything goes!
There’s sewing and glueing. Sometimes lots of it! More of one than the other, depending on what we want to make. And everyone comes up with something fun every single time.
From Zeus, to Percy Jackson, to Presidents or Harry Potter, to birds, to gnomes, to peas, or carrots. You never know! They are that fun to play with.
For decorations sometimes, but mostly for playing. Until new ideas come, and we sit out here again to create together, something new.
