We colored some small stuffed star and heart pillows. The loop they each had is just the right size to loop over a doorknob, so we called them "Doorknob Pillow". "Wait, what's a doorknob?" We had a lesson. ♥
I used a Sharpie marker to write each child's name on their pillow. The kids then used fabric markers to color them. The fabric markers did not bleed on the fabric.
They all wanted to use multiple colors.
Smudge did this the whole time. He was needy.
They also tried not to color over their names.
Ta-da! Doorknob pillows! To create a more time consuming event, you could create pillows out of newspaper and staple them or sew them together and stuff.
