I saw a link on Happy Hearts at Home for Free Printable Paper Dolls so I printed one for my daughter. When I gave it to her she exclaimed, "What's a paper doll?". What? She doesn't know what a paper doll is? I couldn't believe what I was hearing, but it's true. With Barbie's, Polly Pockets and all the cheap dolls nowadays, girls don't really need to turn to paper dolls... or do they? Of course every girl needs to know about paper dolls.
So, for Valentine cards for her class we selected a paper doll and made cards with them. We did this instead of attaching a candy to the Valentine. The doll we selected for the girls found here and boys found here. Another place we checked was About.com: Family Crafts where there's links to all kinds of free paper doll printables.
After printing the dolls on card stock, my daughter cut out heart shapes from felt and sewed them on using a button. For the boys, we selected a football paper doll and she cut-out and sewed a felt monster on the front with two buttons. Aren't they darling?
Babalisme has some amazing printables on her blog that she's created. Make sure to check out her Printables to Print section under labels and pepare to be amazed.
I am a stay-at-home mother to our 2 beautiful children, daughter age 9 and son age 4. I am from Nova Scotia, Canada and my husband is from Maryland. My husband's job brought us here to Kansas and, while we desperately miss seafood and the ocean, we've grown to love the magnificent skies, scenic countryside and the people.
I am the Founder of our local MOMS Club chapter www.momsclub.org. MOMS Club is a non-profit support group for at-home mothers. I'm also a Junior Girl Scout Leader for our daughter's troop.
I started this blog in July 2009 to share my gradual change to making our meals from scratch using natural ingredients and to record my recipes. I do my best to feature recipes with ingredients that are in-season, purchased local, and homemade from scratch.
I am crazy about books, especially children's vintage books, believe strongly in volunteerism and giving back to our community, enjoy talking with other mothers and sharing tips and inspiration, and supporting local businesses.
I hope you enjoy my blog and find some useful information here.
Thank you for visiting my site :)
