Simple Peg Dolls

Now, these Peg Dolls, really are SIMPLE! They are so simple, that I often wonder whether they are "post worthy" -  is it really, worth writing about them?! Do people want to know. Well, I think YES. Simple because my kids ADORE making these... and we have about 40-50 (no, I am not kidding, really THAT many) dotted around the house. They have been making them for a couple of years now, so I guess that isn't too bad.

What I love about them, is that they are "no mess" and that the kids have free reign. Also, I have noticed a significant development in Pip Squeak's dolls -you can really see how her fine motor skills are improving and how she is beginning to explore colours and patterns (the early dolls were ALL pink! Ha).

All you need is one peg doll and some felt tip pens.
The felt tip pens work surprisingly well and it means you can do these with big groups of children with relatively low mess.

In this istance I did help with the hair - It is straight forward to do - check out our Mermaid Peg Doll post for more.

But the kids also love adding simple glitter hair as per our Pirate Peg Dolls.. or why not
add some wings and make Fairy Peg Dolls? I am sure the kids will adore them!

The great thing about these dolls, is that they have fun making them, have total ownership and it also results in LOTS of play afterwards.
