DIY Peg Doll Kit

In your kit you have three acrylic paints, two paint brushes, and two peg dolls.  You have endless options on what to do with your peg dolls.  You can simply paint them.  You can prime with a color, then add details with colored pencils or additional paint.  You can glue on yarn, glitter, pipe cleaners, leaves, acorn tops, etc.

DIY Clothes Pin Doll Kit

My favorite clothes pin doll to make is a pom-pom doll, which is why your kit includes a pom-pom maker template and yarn.  You could also simply paint the clothes pins, wrap them in thread/yarn, or color them with crayons or pencils.
