Do your kids play with dolls?

Mine do, too.

For a fun afternoon, and to encourage creativity in a new direction, design your own doll outfits.

Provide your kids with some basic supplies and see what kind of outfits they can dream up!

Then, suggest that the dolls wear their new outfits to a pretend play doll party with special doll food.

Using scraps of material, old clothes (tights, socks, pants, belts) and safety pins, kids can create dozens of fashion-forward clothes and accessories – no sewing machine required.
