Paper Dolls Printables 1

Paper Dolls - Activity Village Download

The Paper Dolls which can be downloaded from Activity Village along with their clothing are available to download in both colour and black & white so they can be customised by your child.

The colour versions are great to just print off and leave the doll bodies intact on the sheet for young children as a play page, you could give them pre-cut out clothes so they can dress up the dollies themselves.
Older children could have fun colouring the black &white images, cutting them out and they could also use the doll bodies as templates to create their very own wardrobe of clothes for their Paper Doll, adding embellishments such as adhesive gems, flowers, ribbons, sequins, and glitter glues.

The cut out dolls could have a lolly stick or card strip added to the back so they are ready for a puppet theatre, giving lots of fun and hours of play.
I made a little ‘washing line’ out of bakers twine and used mini decorative pegs to hang the paper clothes on, along with some bunting shapes.

I have printed the Paper Dolls on papermilldirect white linen card, as this should go through even the most temperamental of printers. If you have a top feeding printer you may prefer to use one of the higher grammage cardstocks such as papermilldirect plain white card.

The dress up clothes have been printed onto white linen paper, you could also use the pearlescent papers or other cardstocks to suit your needs. I felt the linen paper was nice to use as it has a tactile texture and yet would be easy for small hands to cut with scissors.
