A few years back my husband and I made some peg people for Mr. J's Christmas gift. Last year, he decided that he would make some peg people for his brothers. It was fun to watch him decide what kind each of his brothers would like the most. He made 3 sets of peg people: 4 little ninjas, 4 Minecraft characters, and 4 super heroes.
This is such a fun gift for kids to make! All you need is a bag of peg people (we picked ours up at Hobby Lobby), paint, and some paint brushes. Then let your imaginations run wild!
