My son would love these! I love the rainbow of colors and the difference way to use them. Do all three of your munchkins like playing with them? That purple is pretty…not a classic purple, lol.

My son loved wooden toys when he was younger. We spent a whole lot of money at craft fairs supporting artists who make wooden cars, trains, etc. Love these rainbow friends! Great idea and a fun project to do together with the kids. There really are so many ways to use them. And for the kids who love to find different ways to sort they will be amazing too my grandbabe likes to do that. What a brilliant educational play tool. Thank you!! This is sooo cool.
My daughter would love to be able to a craft like this. So very fun. You did such a good job on these peg dolls! It is such a creative idea and gives so many possibilities for educational play and imaginative play. Great job! Very informative and useful article. These are great! How did the dye hold up after sealing them?

Does the color transfer to hands or other materials? Thank you! The colouring does come off now when Miss 2 is mouthing the pieces. I could probably just reseal them buttttt…. Does it ever melt off if the toy gets left in the sun or scratch off? It really is exciting creating your own wooden toys isnt it?
Our colours do run now when they get wet Miss 2 is still mouthing and it doesnt take much for the colour to transfer.

We had to bring them to Handwork class. But how? Each week I am challenged to bring an adorable and sweet idea to forty students in first or second grade. I thought of using sharpies instead of paint. Which meant a layer of sealant so the sharpie wouldn't 'bleed' into the wood. So we used colored pencils and black paper instead of felt.
How to Make DIY Coloured Wooden Peg Dolls in Cups
I played with the shapes until I made a template that I liked. I traced that shape forty times onto black paper. The kids cut their own wings and ears. They decorated their pegs with rainbows or fangs or both. These are magical bats after all :. Each student had an envelope where I collected the decorated peg, wings, and head to glue at home. I used tacky glue because I added wire feet. Every bat needs to hang out!
Here was a little mistake, though, for me. I had white floral wire and thought, "this won't be so difficult to color black. I should have gone to the store and bought black wire to save myself a lot of time. If you are making one or two, coloring the wire was fun. For forty bats, not so much.
At home, I layered out the wings, head, and wire. I added glue and the peg. I let them all dry on the envelopes to return the next day. Enjoy :.
