Friendship Dolls

Araina came up with this creative and generous idea on her own....Friendship Dolls Araina Style...

We have cabinets FULL of things to get creative with. While Fauna was reading "A Little Princess" to me, Araina wanted to go off and create on her own. She found this.....

And this.......
And this.........

I caught her in the act of doing this......

And this............

Just look at the lovely little Friendship People she made to share with her friends. By the way, Fauna loved the idea and made a few too, but did not want her picture taken today!

I soooo love the unplanned creative moments in life!!!!!

Wow, Lisa, she's amazing... my favourite is the one wrapped up warm and cozy in a white wool dress.
Thank you for passing on the Tree of Happiness to me... I am working on my post for it. It's a lovely award to get and I am very honored... thank you.

Those little dolls are just lovely and what a clever and creative little girl you have Lisa.

My Fig trees have been here since before white man has been in Australia- :-) they are native to this area and we estimate them to be over 400 years old- but we are just guessing.

What a perfect set of friends. I have got to get our wooden peg doll supply up to snuff!

very nice blog...my kids go to Waldorf and many of these activities are part of their curriculum--felting, finger puppets, wishing tree.

Ariana, I like your friendship dolls.

Oh my goodness...your Friendship Dolls remind me of Benjamin's Poodunk Family!!!

Have you seen "their" blog (I think it's listed in my profile)...they are a little wooden family I made for him--they live in his Melissa & Doug dollhouse!

Hee hee...they are like the cousins to your little girls' dolls!!
