Paper Bag Dolls

Another recent craft from the use-what-you-have school of thought is paper bag dolls. I cut two little doll shapes out of a grocery bag, then gave Anja a bunch of scraps of paper, recycled greeting cards, her little scissors, crayons and a glue stick.

With a little help from Mama, she ended up with two cute little friends. One, as you might be able to tell, was accessorized by me, one by her (those are “sleeves,” not water wings, and no, she hasn’t been “cutting.” She just has veiny arms…). She insisted on also making them beds, pillows and blankets, and a little “house” out of the remaining paper bag. Cheap fun for little girls!
