Paperdolls & Dress-up

 the girls had a lot of fun making chinese paperdolls!
 we are gluing on the clothes and making a border of paperdolls from the different countries we visit on our trip around the world!
 the girls had fun dressing up in some costumes for China and they are holding their passports and little booklet they made today of the animals of China!
 does she look Chinese? they had fun with the costumes anyways!
Levi trying not get in any of the pics, He wouldn't dress up for a picture and wouldn't make paper dolls. We started working on our lapbooks today too.

We are working on a poster for Missionaries around the world so if you know of any from whatever country let us know, we would like to have pictures of them but not necessary!
