kids craftComments from crafters - Hello, I thought you might like to see how I used your wonderful snowman paper doll. I made cards for my twin nieces using Picture It! Publisher. On the front of the card I put the ‘naked’ snowman and in a balloon put the words, I am really cold. Can you help me get warm?" I pasted the clothes on the inside. I received an email yesterday with pictures from my brother who said the girls were delighted with the cards and had to ‘do’ them first thing. I noticed that Erin didn’t even take time to take her coat off! I live in Wyoming and the twins live in Texas so I don’t get to see them very often. This was a really fun thing for me to do for them and I just wanted to write and tell you thank you for the great paper doll. Linda

Comments about this Craft:

I used the "Scruffy the dog" paper doll for a unit entitled "Meeting Needs" with my Kindergarten class (Sydney, Australia). The students discussed the difference between wants and needs, and were asked to contribute to a picture list on our basic needs. When we had narrowed them down to food and water, shelter and warmth, love etc, the children made Scruffy and saw how we meet the needs for our pets. We discussed how God supplies all our needs and concluded the lesson with a thank you prayer. Glenda Rouxel

Troll Baby Paper Doll

Troll baby paper dollWhat you will need: Paper, markers or crayons, fake fur, bows or something for the hair, white poster board, paper glue.

How to make:

1. Print out the pattern provided.  Glue the pattern onto a piece of poster board using Elmer's rubber cement.

Caution:  Do not let young children use this glue.  It is extremely flammable and toxic)(Problems Printing?)

2. Color the troll front and back.

3. Cut out a piece of fake fur to fit where the hair should Geo. When cutting the fur brush all the hair to the center so that you don't cut off the length off the fur.  You should be able to  see the canvas that the hair is attached to before cutting.  Glue the hair to the head and then glue on the back of the troll. 

4. Add a bow if you would like.
