I set up the table with paper and a mirror and asked the kids to pay attention to their face features and ask questions about eye colour, hair, the size of their lips, etc. Nina and Carson decided to draw themselves on paper and Dina and Ava just wanted to free draw. When I presented the rag dolls without face features, they all grabbed them and put them back on the table, not showing much interest. They called the dolls creepy. After that I got some different colours and felt sheets and I helped the kids cut some eyes, nose and mouth, got some yarn for hair and then the stories start to come. They gave dolls names, told me where they were from and even what they liked to eat. Then they decided to give them necklaces and bracelets.
