We are always looking for ideas of things to keep the kids active. Quick and easy crafts and activities for kids are always a favorite, especially in the middle of winter when it’s too cold in Colorado to play outside.
Today I am sharing a printable paper doll and kids activity set for you. Kids can color and decorate their paper dolls however they like and then pretend play for hours. I hope you love this printable kids craft!
Today’s project is part of this month’s Craft Lightning series, so make sure to check out the link below for more great busy kids activities ideas.
Printable Paper Doll and Kids Activity
One of the things I love most about paper dolls is that they are easy to customize. Each kid can color them; however they like to create their own personal character.
You can also use these dolls as templates to create your own outfits and designs, just cut out the clothing pieces and trace on to another piece of paper. Then decorate and play.
- Printable paper doll
- crayons, colored pencils and other materials to decorate with
- Optional velcro stickers
- Download and print the printable paper dolls of your choice.
- Color and decorate the character and their clothing.
- Cut out the pieces.
- Optionally add velcro stickers to the front of each doll and to the back of each piece of clothing.
Note: You can cut out the folding tabs or cut them off. You can also print out the pieces on printable magnet sheets and play with these dolls on the refrigerator.
Grab some colored pencils and start coloring your own paper dolls! I’ll make a set with a boy soon too.
