Yesterday I showed you how we painted our peg dolls for the Nativity. Today I’m going to show you how to add details.
The secret: dots. Velcro dots and glue dots.
With glue dots you can add to your Nativity peg dolls:
Lace angel wings.
1/4” wide 12 inch strip of cloth to make a turban (very messily applied)
head scarf to protect from the sun. Cut a pipe cleaner down and it becomes quite a nice little headdress.
When you add velcro dots to your Nativity peg dolls, your person can hold:
a bottle to drink
a pipe cleaner staff and a fun foam jug
And when they’re all put together, you can populate your Nativity peg dolls town.
The wise men can come visit Jesus with gifts.
The shepherds can watch over their sheep
And you can play with them. A lot, several hours for several days.
