Little E met Santa last week (post to come) and her present was a paint your own Russian Babushka doll set. This was a great present because I have a beautiful set which she is obsessed with so now she can have her own.
The only part of this gift which I could foresee being problematic was the paint element. Little E loves painting but at nearly three she has not yet quite grasped the concept of staying within the lines. I had to squash my initial reaction to paint them myself for her and accept that the fun she of painting them is all part of her gift. And when I saw her painting them I was really pleased I let her have free reign because she loved it and was so focused.
The result... Well they are no longer recognisable as dolls but they are certainly unique and Little E is going to love playing with them - if they ever dry!
