Pickin’ Up What She is Puttin’ Down- Wooden Dolls

Remember a couple of weeks ago when Becky from Rub Some Dirt On It came over for a guest post and shared and awesome tutorial for little wooden peg dolls and cups?!?!
Well I wasn’t kidding when I said I wanted to make them, I really did. I was thinking about them and thinking about them until I saved a few extra dollars and went and picked up all the stuff to make them.

It was only $10 of supplies but summer is tight times in this house! You pick up 1 bag of the cups and 4 bags of the little dolls.I just used tempera paint I had because I wanted something non toxic for when she inevitable puts them in her mouth.
Then I had Avery help start the process for grins and giggles. I finished it because she has my attention span, only the baby version. 
I had taped off the heads so I didn’t have to worry about accidental painting.
 After they were all dry, I added white dots. This is what Becky did as well as Brandy from Gluesticks where she got the idea. I thought about trying to figure out something else but I really liked the polka dots.
After they are all dotted up and dry, all that was left was to add faces and hair. Now, I am going to be honest, I was running out the door and wanted to take these with us because new things occupy Avery longer than toys she is already familar with so I just used a brown Crayola marker.
Yeah, be prepared for it to get all over their face if they stick them in their mouth. I would go with the paint if you have time.
They all fit nicely into this salad bowl Avery confiscated and made her own.

Big thanks to Becky and Brandy!
