Do you know a little girl or girls that love to play dress up? Try this with them!
Personalized Paper Dolls
photo of child that you are making the doll with/for
Miscellaneous colored cardstock, magazine pictures, lace, trims of all kinds, crayons or colored pencils, etc.
Take a picture of the child your are making the doll for/with. Glue the photo to cardstock with spray glue. Laminating the photo is a great idea since little fingers will touch them again and again. You can use traditional laminating or laminate yourself with clear Contac paper or packaging tape. Cut out the photo now that it is reinforced. Create clothes to fit the new “doll” using any of the items from above or any other things that you think of. You can create old-fashioned outfits, career outfits (such as doctors, nurses, firefighters or policemen). The sky is the limit! Little boys might enjoy making their own superhero character.
Thanks so much to Beth Seng that shared this idea and the photos of what she created with her grandchildren!
