All princesses need jackets, even cardboard ones, or they will get cold. If their jackets do not have buttons they will come off. So it became my job to sew on the buttons, and from one girl making a princess and needing a button, I then had quite a few more. All the princesses are very individual in appearance, but they all have green jackets with pink buttons in common. This is my favourite sort of activity as it involves both me and the children having an input to get what we want, and also involves them in real activities with real and potentially dangerous tools. The needle was a pretty blunt one so not really dangerous, but I was using the grown up scissors to cut the arm holes. I think quite a lot of the kids we have got this year could be trusted with needles and sharper scissors, but certainly not all! Anyway, here is our round up of princesses.
