For the kids ...
This one is an old favourite but sometimes
it's nice to be reminded of the obvious.
Making a chain of paper dolls is a quick
and easy craft activity but you may be
surprised at how entertaining kids can find it
and how a whole afternoon can disappear in
You will need:
Light cardboard or sturdy paper
Pens, markers and crayons
Decorative materials such as scraps of paper
and fabric, buttons, lace, trim, glitter, tin-foil,
stickers, sequins etc.
Cut a strip of paper about 10 cm high and as
long as you like.
The longer the strip, the more dolls you will end
Fold the strip of paper accordion style, making
each panel about 6cm or so wide
Your (older) child can draw a figure on the top
panel making sure that parts of the body
(hands, feet etc) touch the sides of the panel.
Cut around the figure but don't cut along the
folds where the parts of the body touch.
Unfold the chain of dolls and then decorate with
either just markers and crayons or use glue and
stick on all sorts of wondrous outfits.
Older children will be quite capable of drawing
their own shape on the top panel.
Preschoolers may need you to draw the figure
and cut out the shape but will have plenty of
fun unfolding the chain and then decorating it
once you are done.
