"Paper" Dolls for the Bathtub

More Christmas gifts for the girls. This was a fun project. I made these dolls and the clothes from craft foam. I bought a big pack at Walmart. When you wet the foam, it will stick to the bathtub walls. I found this idea here. I got a little carried away making clothes for the dolls. Originally, I was only going to make one doll, but then decided that could cause problems. Of course, I will probably need to create something to keep these in, but that is for another day (when I find something good). Since they will get wet, I can't just keep then in a fabric envelope, I will have to find something better.

Monkeys (& Elephants) Jumping on the Bed

I made another Christmas gift for the girls today. They love the "Monkeys Jumping on the Bed" song and book. I found a magnet board story here. The bed, each monkey and each elephant has a magnet on the back. They will be able to play with them on the refrigerator. The elephants are for "5 giant elephants jumping on the bed". Of course, I had to make something to keep the pieces in. I created another envelope like the one found here. This time I used the "heat and bond", it is much studier than yesterdays envelope.
