Some of the chapters are very short, and will be combined with a longer chapter.
Chapter One Activity
Introduce your Doll for this book. It could be Tottie, Apple, Birdie, or Mr. Plantagenet.
Or all of them! Or, it could be a Hitty who is standing in for one of these figures.
Chapter Two Activity
Make a little feather broom. I suspect this may be a feather duster, and not an actual broom.
Chapter Three Activity
Make Darner! He is made from clipped wool and pipe cleaners. I would
substitute a toothpick for the darning needle spine.
Chapter Four & Five Activity
Make a Patchwork quilt like the one that Mother made for Apple.
Chapter Six Activity
Find a printie sampler and frame it for the dollhouse.
Chapter Eight & Nine Activity
Take a museum picture of Tottie and/or her friends on display in the museum.
Chapter Ten & Eleven Activity
Make Darner his own kennel, with chopped hay to lay on.
Chapter Twelve Activity
Tottie needs a beret like the ones Emily and Charlotte wear to the museum!
Chapter Thirteen Activity
Make Tottie a warm red woolen cloak.
Chapter Fourteen Activity
Decorate a doll's house for Christmas with a tree and a paperchain.
Chapter Fifteen Activity
Create a Christmas Pudding in a wooden bowl, with a white cloth.
Chapter Sixteen Activity
Take a picture of Tottie being brave and standing firm against something.
Chapter Nineteen Activity
Take a picture of Tottie in either an attic or a kitchen.
Chapter Twenty-one Activity
Make a hat with a feather, much like the one that Birdie loved.
Chapter Twenty-two and Twenty-three Activity
The end of the book. Show Tottie relaxing with Birdie's birdcage, listening
to the bird singing.
