|My 3-year-old loves "reading" my Bible.|
Today we made a doll to rest with God.
Self Portrait Doll
cardboard (prevent the markers from bleeding through the fabric)
sewing machine or you could hand sew it
|Draw a self-portrait on the fabric. (I drew my 2-year-old's for him)|
|Drawing her own self-portrait.|
|It was hard for me not to tell my oldest how to draw herself. But glad I didn't help her because this is truly her own illustration of what she thinks she looks like.|
|When they are finished with the picture, cut around it leaving space for sewing.|
Trace a cut another piece of fabric for the back of the doll.
|Sew the 2 pieces of fabric together like a pillow, leaving a hole to stuff.|
|Stuff the pillow with pillow stuffing, then sew the hole together.|
|Write your child's age and name on back for a keepsake.|
|I can't express enough how much they love their new doll!|
I did this last year with my nieces. It's fun to see the age difference with their details of drawings.
Notice their hands, eyes, and legs. I am hoping I do this every year!
|"Napping" with their doll.|
Tune of "Are You Sleeping Brother John"
Then God rested. Then God rested.
From His work. From His work.
That was on the seventh day. That was on the seventh day.
All was good. All was good.
