The dolls take charge! - part two

"Ok girls, let's get straight into it. We need to get this car painted and pink before I'm setting foot in it!"

"Mmm.. I wonder if this would be a good shade of lipstick for me?'

"Don't you think we need bigger brushes?"

"Oh come on! If we all just concentrate and paint, we'll be done in no time! No thanks to Princess 'I don't want to get paint on my dress' back there!"
"I heard that!"

"All done! Are you sure that paint's dry Princess?"

"Ok let's get on with the tent while the paint dries then."

"Right! A bit of cutting...."

"And a bit of sewing...."

"Why do I always get this job?"

"And of course we need some tent poles. Come on, put your back into it girl!"
"A little help wouldn't go amiss!"

"This isn't as easy as it looks!"

"Sometimes things just don't turn out as you imagine them!"

"Mum! Can you help us please?"

"Ok Girls, you sit and watch so you can do it yourselves next time!"

"Then sew like this...."

"How's that then?"

"Nice and cosy, thanks Mum!"

"Camping is going to be so much fun!"

"I made you a pouch to keep your sleeping bags and mat in too."

"Well girls, I think we're just about ready! We've got our tent, and our sleeping bags."

"Put them in the car, and we're off!"

"Where are we going?"
"I don't know!"
"Didn't you pack a map?"
"Ouch! I just broke a nail!"
Maybe high heels and big hair with crazy make up don't quite go with camping!!
It's my daughter's 5th birthday on Friday, I'm sure she'll persuade the dolls that camping is fun, and take them all over the garden exploring!
