The Incredibles Peg People

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas. We had a sweet time celebrating and look forward to even more family time in the coming week. The majority of the gifts I gave to family members this year were homemade, and I had to throw a special little project for Jace in there too!

“The Incredibles” is Jace’s favorite movie. According to him, it’s just called “Movie.” He likes to run like Dash, will mimic Elastagirl’s sounds from when she fed Jack-Jack while eating (something like “Uh-room"), and we’ll catch him acting out certain movements of Mr. Incredible. So when I saw these adorable peg people super heros, I knew what I had to make Jace.

I picked up my pegs at Joann’s and then had a lot of fun painting them. I followed the movie case for the correct details in their uniforms. I didn’t have any orange, so I had an odd time trying to mix red and yellow and ended up with more of a peach, but Jace doesn’t mind.

They remind me of Veggies since they don’t have arms. But since Jace loves Veggie Tales, even better, right?

On Christmas morning they were the first thing Jace opened. He pulled one out and squealed, “Movie!”

As he took each one out, he lined them up on the ground next to him. I’d say this was a very satisfying gift to make for my little guy.

Thanks for stopping by!
