Fun With AUNT ELSIE from 1919
July 27, 1919. An illustration by AUNT ELSIE from the story "Teeny Weeny Bears".
August 03, 1919. The AUNT ELSIE page always had a project for kids to make. "Here's a jolly usefulness for my little artists to make. Everyone wants a book mark, and here are three that will make any story merrier. Trace these on nice cardboard, leaving the marker ends as long as you wish. Cover their faces and caps with the jolliest colors and then see them laugh at you over the top of the page."
September 07, 1919. There is no mistaking an AUNT ELSIE paper doll. They all have the distinctive AUNT ELSIE look.
