Mermaids` Makings

A Big Princess and a Small Princess

Once upon a time there lived a Big Princess and a Small Princess.. this is how our fairy tale begins..

Annabel`s favourite uncle,  Uncle  Richard gave her an amazing book for her birthday. Usbourne`s “365 things to make and do”. Can you imagine a better present for a “crafty” girl (and her mum)? Anyway.. we have gone through this book many times and found our favourites.  Our first craft are these dollies. The body is made out of  cardboard. Never throw away empty cereal  boxes! (Send these to us :D ) The legs and hands are made of  wool. A superb idea  for making a puppet show.

After finishing the princesses Annabel decided we needed  a castle as well. Fair enough! I gave her… an empty cereal box (have I told you not to throw empty cereal boxes away? ) and a bit of  fabric. Annabel cut out  the windows and a door.. glued them onto a cereal box..   I added the battlements …. and voilaaaaaa!  I drew the queen and the king  looking out from the window (by the way- did you know that “king”  in Estonian means a “shoe” ? ) and our fairy tale can go on..

    I love how much fun you two have together! Love the dolls – so simple and so much room for creativity! I bet that cereal box is much happier now that it is a castle!
