This little bobble head creation is the result of needing to distinguish C's bedroom door from the rest of the doors in our hall.
I taped a few large sheets of paper together to make one sheet large enough for Miss C (who was 2 at the time) to fit on.
I traced around her in pencil and then darkened the lines with marker .
She thought it was a riot to be standing on herself...
I set out the markers and crayons and let her have a free-for-all.
Having a nice snack...I don't want her to really be a "starving artist"
At around 2, she was going through a phase of just coloring in certain areas:
As soon as those areas were colored in she was ready to quit so in order to keep her interested in continuing I set out some paint.
I don't know about you but I love using egg cartons as palettes!
As soon as this beautiful work was dry I cut it out and taped it to her bedroom door.
I wasn't really pleased with the way the head turned out
(since I traced around her quite lopsided)
so I printed out a picture of her face and taped it onto the body.
This didn't stay on the door very long after A learned how to cruise, she ripped it right down.
That's alright though because I can see C's door from my bed and that little person kept scaring me!
I always thought it was C standing at her door.
Now the girls share a room so maybe we can make two new ones to adorn the door
