Personal Growth

When I was much younger my parents gave me a set of unpainted nesting dolls. I loved the gift, but I never painted them because I couldn't think of a design that was perfect enough. Since they were nesting dolls, I wanted to use the nesting factor in the design, i.e. different layers of the human body, an unraveling mummy, etc.

I kept the unpainted dolls for years in the bottom of an old wooden trunk. I recently found the set, and turned it over to my kids, ages five and seven. I love how they painted the dolls (see above). More importantly, I love how much fun they had with the project, and regret not completing it sooner!
