This weekend I thought that Dora was due for a hair cut.
But I soon came to realise that my diva doesn’t know how to handle a scissor properly. so this weekend was devoted to making a mess and cutting up everything in her path with a blunt nose plastic scissor, so she can get use to a scissor. So Dora will have to wait till next week for her hair trim.
For Christmas i decided to surprise both my diva and daddy to give them a pressie that is a craft for both of them to do. Growing grass. I saw the idea be a friend of mine and loved it so much that i knew it would be the perfect craft for daddy and daughter to do as my dh loves gardening.
I looked all over and found at a small shop a little soil doll made out of soil and seeds with grass seeds at the top of head, So that when the grass starts growing it will look like the doll is growing hair.
Last weekend we started the little project. My diva is very much into Dora the explorer so she named the doll Dora. we submerged Dora in a jug of water to get her soaked and her ribbons fell off so i replaced it with white ribbons. My diva and her daddy watered her every other day. And after 3 days we saw sprouts starting to show. and on day 5 she had already lots of “hair”.And on day 8 she is sporting a very nice grass hairdo.
I like to try various types of things to decorate the wrapping paper with and not just hand prints. This past weekend we attended a birthday party and i got rubber stamps for my diva to try her hand at. She immediately fell in love with the cupcake stamp. I decided on purple as the theme of the party was Barney.
When we made the salt dough christmas tree decorations i also made hand and foot prints for my diva’s room. I even put the age she was on it.
Then I painted it a pink base colour and silver for the hand and foot indentation.
