Bag Lady Doll

Materials

  1. Paper grocery bags
  2. Construction paper
  3. Crayons
  4. Yarn
  5. Pieces of fabric

Directions

Lay one of the bags flat and have your child draw her version of a doll's face. Glue or staple several lengths of yarn to form hair. Use fabric pieces or colored paper to make a bow or turban for the hair. Cut strips of paper from one of the other bags to make arms and legs and glue these to the face bag. More fabric can be used for feet and hands. Attach these with glue or staples. Construct and add other accessories from fabric or construction paper. Name your doll as you make up a story about the bag doll's life.
