A peg doll necklace

While I helped Teddy go to sleep the other day, Ruby pored over the inspiring book Making Peg Dolls & More.

Every couple of minutes I would hear her exclaim about something so cute that she wanted to make *grin*

She helped find the materials she needed. The peg dolls, the paint, the glitter {oh my, this girl loves glitter}.

Then she set down to work. Chattering away as she went.

Later, Ruby beamed up at me as she said ‘I made it all by myself’.

And so she did {well almost}. A sweet peg doll necklace for a sweet friend of hers.

She chose yellow paint, pink wings and silver glitter. Finished with a pretty green ribbon to turn her peg doll into a necklace.

Do you think she’ll wear this often? She asked me, as she tilted her head to the side. It is very beautiful, she said.

Oh this girl, she makes my heart melt.

And I see many, many more days of crafting together ahead of us. And many, many peg dolls in our home *grin*

    Hi Kelly,
    Making peg dolls looks like alot of fun. What a wonderful way for children to contribute to their environment. A great sense of belonging for children when they see their peg doll finished. I enjoy your blog and I am inspired by the way you guide (not lead) your childrens ideas and interests.

      Thank you so much Kylie, my children love to have free reign with the materials, but I find showing them a gorgeous book like this helps give them ideas and guides them 🙂
