I was playing around with how to make a fun art doll for 1st grade. You will need to get either parent volunteers or older helpers to hot glue. I am lucky to have a K-8 school where there is often study halls in which I can borrow older kids for help.
Here is what I came up with.
1. Cut a piece of muslin fabric into a square. Place it in the palm of your hand. Put a ball of stuffing in the middle and wrap it with a rubberband.
2. Take a cone shaped cardboard (a yarn cone) and cut to size. Stuff the ghost figure into the cone.
Here is what it should look like after it is stuffed in the cone.
Any other suggestions or ideas for easy doll projects with young kids?
