Make a Doll's Wardrobe

Image
Coat-hangers often come with doll's clothing, but what are you supposed to do with them? Make a doll's wardrobe of course! In this post I'll take you through a project I worked on with my daughter to make a wardrobe for her Barbie's clothes. You can make one to suit any doll, you just need to choose a box that is the appropriate size for the coat-hangers and clothes.

What you will need:
Cardboard boxesScissors Wooden skewerHot glue gun (adult use only)Washable paintPaintbrushGemstone stickers (or similar to make handles) Washable PVA GlueMasking tape Newspaper to protect surfacesSmock Instructions:
Keep an eye on the cardboard boxes coming into your home for one that would be suitable for a doll's wardrobe. You might be lucky and find something with flaps that can be used for the doors or you may have to attach doors yourself. Ideally you don't want to be taping a hinge on as this doesn't make for a sturdy join. Instead, look for something with a fold in it …

Children's Easter Bunny Mask

When the shops are full of Easter eggs it must be time to do some Easter-themed craft with the kids! If you aren't confident in your own drawing ability, and the kids are too young to draw themselves, then a printable what you need. There are so many free and fantastic printables available on the Internet. Just type "free Easter Bunny mask printable" into Google and switch to the "Images" search and you will find lots to choose from.

I wanted to have a go at creating a printable myself so I created this free Easter Bunny Mask printable for the kids to use. Since I was so impressed with the results, I've put up a tutorial on MyKidCraft.com which takes you through how to create the Easter Bunny mask on the left hand side of the picture in this post. The picture on the right shows what the mask would look like if you didn't unravel the cotton wool balls. Younger children could find this easier than dealing with unraveled cotton wool.

I really enjoyed putt…
