Paper Dolls

Need a last-minute coloring activity to keep kids busy? You can print loads of paper dolls off the Internet. Lay out the printed pages on your kitchen table and supply the kids with crayons, markers, colored pencils, and scissors. If they get very attached to some of their creations, cover them with contact paper or glue them to used file folders and cut them out. The file folder backing will keep them from getting dog-eared so quickly. If you don't want to deal with the little flaps that hold the clothes on the dolls, buy a package of Sticky Tack, and let them just stick the clothes right on their dolls. The Sticky Tack won't damage the dolls like Scotch tape would, and you can reuse it next time you pull out the paper dolls. Check out these links for printable paper dolls.:
