Paper Dolls

September 14, 2010

What fun can be had with a bit of paper cut out into the shape of a doll!

1.  Decorate with pencils and play “Mums and Dads” like this pair.

2.  Make a family line for the wall like my older daughter did.

See what your child can do with paper dolls.

Note: For best results, print out on thick gsm paper or glue paper on cardboard.

I love all the different paper dolls in the family line :) And the faces in that upper right photo are too cute!

And yes, I have found with paper crafts and children heavier paper is definitely the go!

I know… me too! And it made me so happy to see them playing with them too. It made my heart sing.

The paper dolls look fantastic! – I cut out paper ‘dolls’ for the kids to decorate as Daddy and we stuck them in his Fathers Day card. He loved them and Neevah was so proud it was very cute :)
