clothespin people

Don’t think for a minute that we are this spontaneously creative often in our house, but this afternoon my daughter was begging to make a little Thumbelina doll. I knew I had these old fashioned clothespins that would work great, so we picked up the boy from school and got busy.

We made Thumbelina a little “nut” shell to sleep in and covered her up with a leaf.

And here she is with her Prince.

The boy couldn’t help but get sucked into the creativity either and made one for himself:

Meet Obi-Wan..lightsaber and all!


It was a fun way to spend a rainy afternoon!
