Paper monsters, paper angels, paper We were inspired by Little House on Plum Creek to make some paper dolls on the weekend. The monsters at the top were decorated by my three-year-old, I did the angels, and my 5-year-old made the bottom row on her own. She insisted on drawing, cutting and decorating it with no help. Today at school, her teacher reported that she was the paper doll queen, making paper dolls for several other children. It was so sweet to hear that such a simple craft could brighten the other kids’ days and help my daughter connect with her classmates.
