How to make a paper doll with Little Snowflake child artist

My little girl sits for hours drawing and creating amazing things. When she showed me the paper doll she had created I just loved it and thought your children would enjoy making one too. Boys can make a pirate and girls can make a witch for Halloween. You can create lots of different costumes for your paper doll. They would make great greeting cards too for all sorts of occasions!

Sorry guys the lighting is not great on the video, but Little Snowflake is very entertaining. Below the video I have added the templates for you to click on and save, for those children who just like to colour in and cut, cut, cut! I traced round her original paper doll drawings so it is near enough the same.


Click on the image below and save to your computer. Print off and colour in. Then all you have to do is cut, cut, cut. Cut out the head, arms and legs.

Click on the image below of the vest and shorts. Save to your computer. Print off and colour in your own design. Cut, cut, cut the box shape out. Like the video above you tape the head and legs only to the back of the vest and shorts.

Click on the image below and save to your computer. Fold the sides to make a jacket and place on the dolly. You tape the arms to the back of the jacket and design your own dress or costume, or you can come back and find templates from Little Snowflakes designs. Leave a message and we will answer.

Just look at Little Snowflakes Christmas Dress design. Pretty neat ah. Have fun kids. I really loved this little paper doll as it is easy peasy and can give kids hours of fun.

Don't forget Little Snowflake wants to see your designs and artwork so leave her a comment through Mummy and Daddy on this blog. There is a Facebook Group called:

Proud of my child are you and why?

This morning my little girl had me cutting out little characters she had drawn to take into school to sell and raise money for Cystic Fibrosis, because she cares more about her cousin than money and possessions.

I cannot say how proud I am of her, my heart sank and that wonderful moment of pride covered me like a warm blanket on a cold winters day. Even though her Dad said no to asking her teacher if she could sell these characters to raise money for this charity, she said "ok Dad I will do it!" That's my girl! I have taught her well.

Below are some characters she created of her very own. The Vegetable and Fruit pirates.

Does my little girl come from a rich background. No! But compared to some children in the world we are rich, because we have a roof over our head. I would say out of all her friends she is the worst off financially and health wise. But she is rich in other ways. She would rather have me at home than working a full time job than not be their for her. And she gets very upset when she is ill with Asthma and I have to go to work in fear of losing my part time job, which just pays some bills. Here she is talking about the damp in our house and little Jodie her cousin who has Cystic Fibrosis. She is wearing a mask because Cyber Bullies.

I will keep on supporting Little Snowflake and get the damp sorted
so she can have an art room. She deserves it!

What has your child done that makes you proud?

Sponsor child artist Little Snowflake to promote art products

Little Snowflake is an amazing little artist who draws stunning original little pictures and wants to be on TV. She danced in front of fairy artist Josephine Wall at the Kirks Folly fairy tea party. Sadly Cyber Bullies crashed and burned the footage. But we still have some of her Dad singing at the Enchanted Manor and have lots of videos of her little Butterfly Lullaby art shows.

Here is her very first art show. How to make a clown mask, you gotta, snip, snip, snip! Very funny.

Little Snowflake has had well over 19,000 hits on You Tube with her original design of how to draw a flower alien.

I have been trying to learn a little bit of Welsh so she has created some amazing little Pirate vegetable characters and others to make it more fun as my memory is not great (did you know if you have dyslexia it affects your memory so don't be tough on yourself.)

Little Snowflake loves Google:

Little Snowflake loves the Mr Men books and stories. She has created her very own Little Miss characters. Here is Little Miss Tea Party on her very own cup:

There are many other videos with this lovely little child artist. We wrote this Christmas song for don't drink and drive. Little Snowflake has a sweet little voice.

Here is Little Snowflake singing her Little Snowflake song last Christmas 2010.
