A friend of mine who works in the Children’s division of the library has asked me to do a program making paper dolls at the end of the month. Always ready to jump in with teaching children, I said yes. I’ve done this before, but have given away all of the dolls that I made. So I had to make more!
I started with collaging different papers onto poster board. For the class we’ll use card stock, but I wanted to make more than one doll. I also wanted to make more than dolls. Susan asked for Paper People and Paper Pets.
Then came the fun part of putting the pieces together and embellishing them.
This is a quick fun project to do with children. I purposefully kept all the steps simple to make it a one hour program. When there is time, I like to have the children draw their own people shapes. For this program, we’ll have templates and stencils ready to trace.
