A couple of months ago, on a very rainy Vancouver day, we had a little family crafternoon and put together Gracen’s first ever grassheads. Ever since, they’ve been sitting atop their mason jars on our kitchen window sill, soaking up the sunshine and drinking up loads of water. Of course, our little magic girl’s grasshead has grown far better than Mama’s or Papa’s.
This is what it looked like this morning…
About time for a hairdo of some sort, I’d say. So while Gracen napped, I set up a little play invitation for her. I gathered up some hair goodies, a couple of elastics, and an old hairbrush and set them all out on her table along with her grasshead.
This was her reaction when she saw what I’d set out for her… Kisses for the grasshead! Apparently she liked what she saw.
She wasted no time getting started. She climbed up on the chair, and got busy trying to put the clips in. It wasn’t easy, but with a little bit of help, she put every single clip in the grasshead’s hair.
Next up was the headband.
That is, until she decided she’d wear it instead!
Done with the first hairstyle! Future hairstylist? I’d say so.
Afterwards, I helped her make little grass pigtails. She thought it was completely hilarious and kept stroking her own pigtails and then pointing to those belonging to the grasshead.
Overall, Gracen loved this activity. My only wish is that I had taught her how to properly use scissors by now so that the grasshead could have gotten a little trim! I guess we have something new to work on. ☺
