Have your little girls discovered Lalaloopsy
dolls yet? In the summer we held a multi-family yard sale and Lou absolutely fell in love with one of the dolls one of the other families was selling. Lucky her, she had 50 cents to buy it! Since then it has been the coveted toy around here. All the girls think they are great and thanks to Maisy's birthday we've recently added a couple of the mini dolls to our collection. They are packaged in a tiny cardboard house, but the houses haven't withstood my girls' play so we decided to make them a home ourselves.
We just used shoeboxes, scrapbook paper, foam stickers and other "junk" we had lying around to make them. Here's some shots of what they worked on all Sunday afternoon.
|Lou decided her house needed a patio.|
|The window is just right.|
|I helped Maisy add a slide to her house, unfortunately the dolls |
get stuck in it, but it's perfect for their little pets.
|I love the little bed - a toilet paper tube cut in half.|
|Lou taped a flameless tea light to the roof.|
|Busy, busy, busy -|
they worked really hard on this most of the afternoon.
My girls have really been into making things from boxes lately.
What do your kids like to make with cardboard boxes?
