We've really been enjoying the Klutz Paper Fashions Fantasy book that we reviewed last week! The kids -- yes, even 3Po and Jammy! -- have churned out fashion after fashion, tracing and cutting and gluing and decorating almost every day after school. The Pea is using the paper and embellishments not only for the paper dresses, but also for other crafts that she's making, like notecards and little books for her dolls. Not to be outdone, the boys have also joined in. I don't mind at all -- I think all that detailed tracing and cutting is great for developing their fine motor skills, their pencil grip and their scissor grip. And I love seeing them express their artistic side.
3Po made lots of mermaid outfits. For some reason, he really liked doing mermaids. I thought this one was cute because the top part looks like a bathing suit, even though there's no way a mermaid could put it on. Hey, it's supposed to be fantasy, so what do I know?
Jammy, on the other hand, liked fairies. Fairies with long gowns. This one looks like a 70's-era Woodstock fairy. I wonder what kinds of magic mushrooms this fairy was handing out!
When I saw this creation from The Pea, I complimented her on the use of the gauzy ribbon for sleeves. Her response: "Mama, those aren't sleeves! That ribbon is supposed to be a shawl". Forgive my fashion faux pax, Pea, that shawl is beautiful.
