When Kaitlyn turned 4 she had a Dora birthday party. I made all the kids their own backpacks and maps. And Kaitlyn's set has resided in her dress up box ever since where she will pull it out periodically. Recently Katy got it into her head that Tyler needed a Diego backpack and a map and would not give up until I sewed one for him. I just finished up the face and the velcro this morning. And luckily I had a couple maps left over from the party so I didn't have to recreate one for Tyler. They are both wearing their backpacks around the house this morning :)
I got the original instructions here http://www.nickjr.com/parenting/activity_finder/games/dora/indoor_games/doras_backpack.jhtml but I used felt instead of craft foam and sewed it together so it would be more durable.
