Julie has always been very creative and imaginative. She gets an idea in her head and runs with it.
So when she got a new idea book for her American Girl doll this week, we just had to take a trip to Hobby Lobby to get supplies. For $25 we got supplies to make 11 projects.
Here is what she has made so far:
1) Lunch tray with lunch on it.
2) Pancakes - YUM!
3) Hand cast
4) Cup of hot chocolate
5) Our crowning achievement - the piano and stool.
To make the stool, we bought a little paper mache round box and covered it with leftover black posterboard.
We bought supplies for Julie to make another 6 projects: A birthday cake (made from another paper mache box), a campfire (cinnamon sticks with tissue paper), a board game (construction paper, foam, beads and buttons), hopscotch (construction paper, chalk, wadded papers, and pom-poms), balls (ping-pong balls colored with markers), and a wallet (made out of felt).
I'm so proud of her creativity.
She's had loads of fun making all this stuff. And, heavens knows, it's tons cheaper than if we bought any of it at the American Girl store!
What about you? Do you or your kids make homemade stuff for their dolls?
