On a recent walk, we took pictures of all of the signs of Spring we could find. Since that walk, the first blooming flower in our yard has appeared - a single, pale yellow daffodil. What a sight! It's like that glimpse of hope right when you need it. I hope this post can be that for those of who are yet to see any sign of Spring. Please know it is coming!

Start with this style clothespin. Paint whatever color pants and shoes.
Next, add a shirt and any details to the clothing you want and hair. I have the shirt end just over the curve so that it looks like shoulders.
Next comes the face. *I recommend using a fine tip brush for the face and clothing details.
Finally, you will seal them with any wood sealer. Most dry quickly which is a good thing as your kids won't want to wait to play with these!
I made boys and girls and experimented with different hair and skin colors, hair styles, and various clothing colors. I think my kids like the variety.
