Last week was birthday week for half of this household. We also had visitors all week. So, maybe that is why I have not posted for two weeks? Anyway, I have been really excited to show online what I made for G. and her cousin who is my Goddaughter for their birthdays (which are three days apart). They both turned three. I first got this idea a couple of years ago. The idea comes from this blog post. The story goes back to G. loving to listen to these Bible stories and then act them out. I decided to make her Bible characters and saint dolls to act out the stories and play with. My niece got her own set which I forgot to photograph.
These are all painted with acrylic paint and finished with a spray finish that claims to be non toxic when dry.
I went to Jo Ann’s and discovered that they have an awesome variety of wooden boxes with latches. Then I glued the felt in as lining to protect the dolls from the unfinished wood. I was thinking G. would want to paint the box herself, but so far she is happy with it unpainted.
