Summer is finally here. Now that your kids are out of school, I’m sure you’ll be looking for more productive activities other than sitting in front of the TV, or a cool indoor activity for hot summer days. Did you ever create paper dolls as child? Here’s a new twist on this childhood favorite.
First, download the baby doll templates provided below. Next, take the templates to a nearby FedEx Office®store or use our online printing service. Be sure to choose heavy card stock to print the dolls. The sturdy paper will help withstand hours of fun. I selected a 100 lb paper from the book of paper options at the store. You may want to print a few extra copies, so your kids can decorate dolls with friends.
Next, cut out the dolls from the template. Kids can use household items such as yarn, pipe cleaners and buttons for decorating the doll’s clothes and creating facial features. You can always pick up stickers or markers at FedEx Office if you’re short of supplies.
This project is a great way to encourage creativity and curb summer boredom. Once the dolls are fashionably dressed, your kids can celebrate in style with a fancy tea party, outdoor picnic or wherever their imagination takes them!
