From then on all ER could talk about was how much she wanted a vanity like the girls had. We had to play beauty shop every day and put a zillion hair clippies in her hair. Come to think of it we still do, only now she wants to do my hair too.
That ended up being her big Christmas gift last year, a vanity and pretend make up set, that she still loves. For some reason blow drying her hair is her favorite thing to do, hers makes this little noise and she just loves holding it up to her head. After lunch each girl got these little edible water colors to add detail to their gingerbread bears. That was so neat, hadn't seen that before. ER was content to back and forth between the color sheet and her bowl of water. She just wanted to dip that brush into the water over and over, never mind those bears!
We gave both girls a little beanie snow lady and some handmade goodies, cause you know that's the way we roll! I shared both of these before but here's a second look.The little felt necklaces for each girl were easy to put together using my die cut machine; I posted the directions, at the very bottom of this post. We also gave them each two pairs of hair clippies. Since I have a very girly girl I've posted on this subject a few times. Some online resources and tutorials I've used are shared in this post, how to cover alligator clips here, more examples of clippies in this challenge, and a cute craft and way to store hair clippies here.
