I have always had a thing for Matryoshka dolls or Russian nesting dolls. Recently I bought a set of five blank Russian dolls for the kids and I. It was a fun craft for our Monday afternoon. The kids loved it as you can see below.
They loved their dolls so much that eventually, they snuck them out of my room, (I hid them to save as a mommy keepsake), and then the dog got ahold of them and that was that. T-Rex thought they were chew toys. No more Russian dolls.
However, the short time we spent painting them and the time the dolls were hidden in my room were good times and good memories… I was able to admire them a few times before they were devoured. If you decide you want to buy your kids a set you can find many choices at Wal-Mart.com and support our stay and travels in Mexico while you are at it ;-) Signing off in Mexico, Tina
