The traditional activities are so often the best aren’t they?
There were full on discussions about hairstyles and skirt colour. I did make Bean some boy paper dolls at first but he was not impressed as the skirts were more fun to decorate. (Having two sisters, he does keep insisting he’d rather be a girl.)
So keen were they to play with the paper dolls and make them dance, that they chose not to colour them all and took them naked (Bean found this hilarious!) to fly around the house. There was a full hour of paper doll dancing and twisting and turning (“just like strictly” they chorused!) before the poor paper dolls were relegated to the front of the fridge door with the other artwork.
But Bean made some extra large giant paper dolls with Nanny – a full reconstruction of the whole family! We’ve gone paper doll crazy in this house!
