Paper dolls

Florence received a 'Fairy Craft Pack' for her birthday and absolutely loves it. She has spent all morning creating and decorating her fairy, there is probably more glue than sequins stuck to her and the fairy, but it has kept her happy and occupied and using her creative imagination which is always a bonus!

It reminded me of the paper dolls I had when I was little with the assortment of outfits and accessories that had tags you tucked over to keep in place. Out of curiosity I had a quick search on Amazon and was amazed at the array of different 'Paper Doll' books that are available (I have led a sheltered life) a great idea for future presents and some of which may end up in my wish list!

I did do something similar with William and Florence a couple of Sundays ago, which William at first was not interested in, but strangely enough kept him entertained for a whole grey, wet 'boring' Sunday afternoon.
