In 2012, I painted quite a few wooden dolls into saints.
I came up with a few fun ways to use the Wooden Saint Dolls…like the Saints-To-Go in an Altoids tin…for travel!
I decided to dig them out again…and once again find things my kids love to do…and add the Saints!
My kids have all enjoyed play-acting with Little People, Lego People, Polly Pockets, Littlest Pet Shop, Kelly dolls, Barbies, Disney movie characters…and really any little figures that they can find.
I remember playing with Fisher Price toys when I was a kid…and even though the Little People look a little different now, my kids are quite familiar with them too!
The Wooden Painted Saints are a good size for the different pieces we have collected over the last 16 years! In fact…the Wooden Painted Saints…are a little closer to the original Fisher Price Little People!
Do you remember the original Fisher Price Little People?
Well…I figure why not let the kids play with Saints for Little People?
…or build houses for them out of Lincoln Logs?
(…calling on those years in Architecture School…)
or heavenly castles built with Lego for our Communion of Saints!
I guess Strawberry Shortcake is a bit of a stretch
…especially for The Upper Room.
