Oh, and what's a doodlebug you ask? It's based off of a real bug! (Yes, yes, I know. Sneaky mommy bringing in bits of biology into Lu's story. But when Lu told me that her bug was an artist, I just couldn't help myself.) When I showed her the picture of the designs the real doodlebugs made in the sand, she exclaimed, "But I make designs in the sand too! I'm just like a doodlebug!" So yes, doodlebugs have made it onto the 'cool' list at our house. And I couldn't be more pleased.
I drew up a Snugglebug paper doll and some outfits to match some of the stories that Lu told me about her doodlebug.
Here's Emma in her bug outfit with her painted wings.
I made a colored-in version, but I also made a version that Lu could color in herself.
Lu was super excited to color in her own:
Here's an outline version of our paper doll, if you or your snugglebug would like to color in your own. I'd love to see your version too--feel free to upload a picture to the Snugglebug University facebook page.
Does your Snugglebug have a story? We'd love to hear it. Leave a comment below or on our facebook page and I'll share your stories with Lu.
This is just our first Snugglebug paper doll--check back soon for more!
Interested in the colored in version? You can also buy my (colored-in) version of the doodlebug in my Etsy store.
