4th of July Fun! July 2, 2010


It’s only 2 more days until one of the most important days in American history- Independence Day. Over 200 years ago America became an independent country,and my dolls are ready to have fun with the Fourth! Are your dolls?
We hope so! Dress your dolls in red, white, and blue for the big day and make crafts with them. Eat plenty of watermelon and apple pie and ask your family to have  picnic at your local fireworks show. Bring your doll, I want to see those pictures!
That reminds me. You know how Liz asked all of you to share your summer photos? It wasn’t a contest, but she posted them all? I would like to do something like that. Here’s how it works:
1. Take a picture of your doll wearing/doing something that has to do with America or 4th of July. You could take her picture in her favorite patriotic attire, having a picnic with her friends, watching fireworks, or even dressed up like a  colonial girl who actually heard the news that America was free. Is your doll a different nationality, and proud to be an American? Express that. Plus, if you have any extra pictures such as a cool firework or a red-white-and-blue cake you might have made, or a craft, send that along with your doll picture.
2. Send your photos to Deadline is July 7, so you have enough time to take pictures of her on the actual fourth or around that time. I will display the photos soon after.
3. Have fun that day! Hopefully I can get my dolls to do something. They will be coming to a Fourth of July fireworks show with me, so  might be able to show those pics.
5. ONE MORE THING- If you have an idea for a fourth-of-july craft or recipe, that’s great too.
