Overview

Playing with a doll is all about imagination. Here are some craft projects to make that play a lot more fun! Is it a hot day and you want your doll to go to the beach? Then make her a gorgeous bathing suit and matching beach bag, all from an old sock! Is it freezing outside? Then use the fingers of an old glove to make her some mittens and ear warmers. Does your doll have lots of clothes? Then she could use some adorable hangers and a functional but very attractive closet you can make from a box. Halloween costumes, a bulletin board, a scrapbook, jewelry...whatever props you and, of course, your doll need to set the scene, you will find them here. And, best of all, you can make all the items yourself with things you probably have around the house.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Tired of playing with your dolls? Don't know what to do today? Make something for your doll! This book containing twenty craft projects will keep children occupied for hours. Projects are explained clearly, starting with a "Here's what you need" section that not only lists necessary materials but also provides a picture of each item. The "Here is what you do" section explains how to make the particular craft, again illustrating the different steps along the way. The drawings are in beautiful colors; the dolls look like dolls and the projects are fairly true to form (the doll-size picture frame illustration made with a plastic flip top from a salad dressing container actually looks like it was made from such a recyclable in the finished product picture). Other projects include a box doll closet, a sock bathing suit and beach bag and mittens and ear warmers. Adults will be pleased to know that very few materials not usually found around the house are required. Keep in mind that these are projects making tiny crafts, and may be frustrating for younger children but are perfectly achievable with adult help. Recommended. The author has thirty years experience as a teacher and director of preschool programs. She has written more than forty craft books. 2003, Millbrook Press, Ages 9 to 12.
