Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Phillipians 4:8

Pippi and Annika

During the last week of school, Regan had the pleasure of reading about Pippi Longstocking. While I have heard of this cute character with the braids that stick out, I confess to not really knowing much else about her. Regan has spent the last week 'educating' me on the mis-adventures of Miss Pippi.

Today, the girls decided to dress up as Pippi and Annika. Regan rummaged through her clothes and found the best suitable 'brown' dress. We haven't quite figured out how to make braids that stick out, but she came up with the idea of wrapping her ponytails in a dozen or so colorful hair ties. :) She dotted her cheeks with some brown freckles and made herself a paper Mr. Nilsson (the little monkey) to attach to her shoulder.

Sage was assigned the role of Annika. Donning one of Regan's t-shirts as a dress, she set out to adding her own freckles to her a much more colorful and plentiful fashion! :D

After finishing their costumes, they had fun role playing some of the scenes from the story. As I was prepping dinner, I was informed that I, 'the mommy', was already in heaven and the two girls were on a boat searching for Pippi's father.

What are your kiddos up to this summer? Anything fun?

We are huge Pippi fans over here. Lily loves to watch it and loves to play scenes of it while she plays :) You can put a piece of wire or hard plastic in the braids. Your girls look adorable! What fun!

They look adorable. Braid some pipe cleaners into the braids to get them to do whatever you want.
