Mermaid Peg Doll Matching Game

Elsie is obsessed with things that match, so I thought we would use it to our advantage and make some DIY games for her to play. As she is obsessed with mermaid I thought I would make some mermaid peg dolls that she could colour match with.

Now, I have said it before, and I will say it again, I am no artist or pro crafter, I make stuff and if my kids and you guys recognise it then great, (so I apologise now for some of the dodgy mermaid faces!), but these were generally quite easy to make, and I had made them in less than half an hour.

You need:
Felt, the stiffer the better, and in a variety of colours
Felt pens

Start by glueing a few strands of cut up wool, for hair, onto the top of each peg, whilst the glue dries, cut out your tails from each colour of felt you want to use. Once the glue is dry, colour in the closed end of the peg, add a mermaid bra top and a smiling face, continue until all of the tails have a mermaid and your ready to play!
