I spent hours playing with my paper dolls as a child. I would use an old pair of blunt ended nail scissors to carefully snip dozens of little outfits out of paper doll books and then dress them with complicated dramas playing out in my mind.
I have made two pages of blank templates for a paper doll and her clothes. All you need to do is download and print them off. You may need to help your kids snip them out and then they are ready to be decorated and dressed in extraordinary combinations. You can see AJ and my interpretations in the photo above.
You may need Acrobat Reader to open the file.
The main figure (top left) would work best printed or stuck onto sturdy card stock so it doesn’t flop around annoyingly. I have included such fun features as an 80s bubble skirt, a bear costume and a tiara.
