When Little J turned 4, she was really into the story of the famous British nanny.
Her outfit was based on Mary’s carrousel ride outfit. I did not think she would handle the big tulle hat very well, so instead I made her a little tulle hat hair clip.
We made little kite-shaped chalkboards for the boys
and Mary Poppins dolls for the girls.
I used a slightly altered version of the Black Apple doll (details courtesy of Martha HERE) and added accessories.
with a little thank you note from Mary herself
Tuxedo-wearing penguin piñata
The children decorated “carpet bags” with foam cut-outs of umbrellas, kites, flowers
and images of Bert and Mary
We had a very respectable horse race
and cupcakes topped with pink marzipan penguins
