Hi all! Today I have a fun craft for you coming from the Little Miss. She is going to show you how to make this easy, but pretty baton for your dolls!
I also want to take this time to do a quick review of the MyLifeAs brand bathing suit and picnic set that we picked up the other day from Walmart. 🙂
Ok let’s get started! I will let the Little Miss take over from here.
For this craft you will need:
A thin dowel or a barbecue skewer
Markers or paint
1.Start by cutting your dowel or barbecue skewer down to the size that you would like your baton to be. You can make it as long or short as you want.
2. Paint or colour your baton in a design that you like. I did a stripe pattern.
3. Next cut five strands of ribbon. I used different colours for mine. Hot glue the ribbons to the end of the baton.
4. Now hot glue a bead to the end of each ribbon. I chose beads that match the ribbons.
5. Hot glue a bead to the other end of your baton for a finishing touch. And you’re done!!
Now you have a fancy baton for your dolls to play with!
It fits nicely in the doll’s hand! Enjoy!!
Back to you, Mom!
Awesome craft, Little Miss! ❤ I hope you all have fun making these sweet little batons!
Now on to our review!
The MyLifeAs brand from Walmart has really been stepping up its game lately, putting out cute, and affordable outfits and accessories for the dolls that are definitely top notch alternatives to the more expensive brands.
I, for one, am very pleased with their bathing suit selection this year, and when I saw this little blue checkered swimsuit with lime green accents, I was thrilled!
It matches our blog!! LOL!
One thing that you have to know about this swimsuit is the quality. I was so surprised at how beautifully made it is. It also fits the doll remarkably well. The top simply velcros in the back.
I have to say, the ruffles are adorably sweet! I also really like the swimsuit cover up. Too cute!
Matching shoes!! I actually don’t mind these little flip flops. Others have complained that they look odd because the dolls don’t have actual toes, but I like them. They stay on the doll’s feet very well. 🙂
The picnic set matches the swimsuit! I don’t know if that was planned or not. It doesn’t match any of the other swimsuits, so maybe not. It might just be a fluke.
The picnic basket is made of plastic. I feel like that’s the only downfall of the set, but for the price, I really can’t complain.
I also think that it could have come with some food, but again, the price begs to differ with me. 🙂
The plates and bowls are a bit small, but everything fits inside the basket nicely, so I guess that’s why. I do think that the basket should be wider. It’s a bit narrow. There isn’t much room left inside once you get all of the plates and cups in there.
Here is a close up of the basket. It has a woven basket design set into the plastic. Both sides open and the handles can move.
I love the little forks and spoons! The goblet cups are super cute too!
The picnic blanket is made of light cotton. It could have been made a bit bigger as well, but it is cute.
Overall, I recommend both of these sets. They are perfect for doll play, and any little girl would be thrilled with them. 🙂
Thank you all for coming! I hope you enjoyed our craft as well as our review!
