Enjoy some screen-free fun with this Bear Paper Doll
Did you have a paper doll when you were young? I used to ogle over paper doll books in my school bookshop, assessing which book contained most of the dresses I liked, before parting with my week’s pocket money.
I bought versions with ballgowns, summer outfits, swimming costumes… These were like the Instagram of little me, as I dreamt of wearing fabulous dresses in exotic locations.
Carefully cut out Mama Bear and her outfits. The hats require careful cutting with a paper knife, so do help little hands with this bit.
Fun Fact: We actually made several mock-ups. In the first version, Mama Bear’s bikini bottom slid off and her shoes were cumbersome to put on. We made many adjustments as I wanted this to be easy for small hands to cut, so we made scallops much bigger and minimised frills which needed intricate scissors work.
