Peter Pan Crafts
Peter Pan is an interesting character because he refuses to grow up and can't keep his shadow on. Have your children make drawings of Peter and hang them up on your wall. Create shadows with your kids by having them lie down on a black piece of butcher paper. Trace them and then cut out the "shadow." Children can hang their shadows on the wall to make sure they don't lose them.
Wendy Darling is the oldest Darling child who flies away with Peter on his journey. Get into the Wendy spirit by making thimble necklaces, which Wendy refers to as a kiss in the book. Have children place beads and other charms onto a string, along with a thimble to represent Wendy. Girls may also have fun creating hair bows like Wendy's. Purchase a large ribbon from the craft store and have the child tie it into a bow. Take the bow and glue it onto a hair clip so your child can easily wear it any time.
