paper dolls

A creative, imaginative toy for over 200 years!  Several resources are available online for virtual play, or turn it into the real deal by printing doll templates on card stock.

Find outfit & accessory inspiration from magazines or fashion websites.  Materials include scrapbook paper, wrapping paper, foil, yarn, ribbon, thread, rhinestones, glitter, markers, & beads.  Make tabs to hold the clothes onto the doll or use scotch tape.

Additional ideas include making a closet with paper or cardboard for storing, opening “stores” with themes then buying & selling with friends, & giving as gifts for parties or to stay in touch with long distance friends.
