Since Spring is coming and there are sure to be many rainy days, I will be posting Rainy Day Ideas. My girls craft/project addicts, anything they can cut or glue makes them happy.
Free Paper Dolls
Take an American Girls Doll catalog - or any catalog for that matter, but the AG one will be easier - have your child pick the doll she likes best. Cut out the doll and glue it really well on some thin cardboard. (I save the cardboard that comes in tights or underwear packages) While the glue is drying, find outfits in the catalog that will fit the doll you chose, cut them out remembering to also cut tabs to fold over the shoulders and around the arms/legs of your paper doll. You can find outfits off of similar sized pictures of dolls and just cut the head off:) When I did this our paper dolls were taking a while to dry on the cardboard, so I used a hairdryer and it worked great. Once the paper doll is dry and glued on the cardboard, cut the paper doll out and let the fun begin!
