Flat Kaye

An enjoyable book and activity in my classroom, was Flat Stanley. The children had so much fun taking Flat Stanley on adventures. They would also send him to friends and relatives to take on journeys and visit different places. It was a great way to learn about other cities, states, and places.
My Meemaw friends and I are preparing for a trip to South Padre Island. We are going to visit bird sanctuaries and sea turtle rescues. One of the Meemaws will not be able to go on this trip. I did not want her to miss out on our fun, so I made a Flat Kaye doll.
I drew the doll on muslin and backed it with double-sided Bosal foam and felt. After sewing on the doll outline, I used pinking shears to cut close to the outline. Then I used acrylic paint and a fabric medium to add color. My plan is to include Flat Kaye in the photos we take on our trip. I guess I am still in teacher-mode and I feel the need to plan fun activities for my friends. 😊
