Imaginative Play with Stick People

 

There is so much to do these next couple days, I wish my sister could be here again. She helped us out with Sydney this past weekend, and my husband and I were able to get caught up on a bunch of work. Syd had lots of fun playing with her auntie, and when they broke into the craft cabinet, these cute craft stick people were the outcome. Continue reading

After getting them home and having a long debate on where they should go, we decided they would be most fun in a child’s room.
