morning kid craft

We played outside this morning until it got too hot (approximately 20 minutes). And then I remembered seeing these great paper dolls on Kidley and we gave them a try.

Wren immediately began planning outfits for the dolls. The templates come with a bear costume (!) and a few dresses and skirt/shirt combos, but Wren said "she needs a mermaid tail, and a shell thing on top, and a crown, and another friend doll..."

This is definitely more of a Wren craft than a Jane craft. Jane spends most of her coloring time painstakingly peeling the wrappers from every crayon that crosses her path. It's good practice for Wren though- she needs to build patience (don't we all), and fine motor control.
