Every time you look at The Paper Dolls, they work like magic and create a beautiful unforgettable story by a little girl
Over the weekend, we read The Paper Dolls by Julia Donaldson. Miss A was so fascinated with these dolls that she kept pestering me to help her make them as well. Though she did not want to make five paper dolls as in the books, she only wanted to make 2 – her friend and herself.
So for the remaining part of the weekend, we opened our craft box and searched for ribbons, clips crepe paper, wool and all possible things which would help us to make 2 pretty girls. First, she drew an outline of the dolls and then we cut those. In the meanwhile, I tried to create a beautiful skirt with some crepe paper for one of the cutouts and a frock for the other. Once the clothes were ready, Miss A pasted them on the cutouts and for the final touches, we put wool as hair and clips as ear studs. Also, put some glitter here and there to make them shiny and beautiful. Since her friend wears glasses and has long hair, Miss A insisted that these details were also incorporated in the cutouts.
Don’t these paper dolls look great ready to tell a story right away…
