My three-year-old is coming into her own when it comes to fashion and dressing herself and having an opinion about what she wears. So we made a doll dress-up board where she could unleash her inner fashion designer and design her own doll clothes. It all packs up into a go-anywhere travel board so she can play anywhere she wants.
Gather up your supplies. We used a cereal box for the board's base, and colored felt (and decorative doo-dads, like beads) for all of the doll pieces. It was fun to see what kinds of designs my daughter came up with!
Then we cut out a little person shape from some tan felt. If your child is older, they can draw their own person and then cut out the shape.
Once we had one dress complete, my three-year-old used that as a guide and traced the pattern to create other dresses.
She drew on the dresses and glued items to decorate her designs. It was fun to her one-of-a-kind designs come to life.
Once all of her designs (and doggy) were cut out, we taped a sandwich bag to the back of the cardboard.
