Create Your Own Doll Sized Science Presentation on Volcanoes!

Karen here and today I am sharing with you my new Doll Diaries Camp Camper Alice who like me loves Earth Science! Her passion is Volcanoes which means she loves the Earth Science of Volcanology! Isn’t that a fun word to say? Earth Science was my favorite science in school and today I wanted to share a fun and easy Science Camp Craft you can make for your dolls!

To make your own Volcano and Tri Fold Display Board you will need:

Step 1- Cut off one of the egg cups from your egg carton.

Step 2- Cut a piece of cardboard 4 inches by 3 inches

Step 3-Use your Aleen’s Tacky Tape Runner to adhere your egg carton cup to your cardboard as shown in the photos above

Step 4- Paint your egg cup brown and let it dry.

Step 5- Use your Scribbles Red paint to create “rivers of lava” and run them down the sides of your Volcano. Add the Yellow paint as an accent color. Top with some of the Cotton ball or fiber fill to represent the steam or ash cloud from your Volcano. Allow it to dry. Write your dolls name on her project or just the word Volcanoes.

 To create your own Tri fold display board:

Step 1- Cut a piece of cardboard 9 inches wide by 4 inches tall.

Step 2- With your ruler measure 2 1/2 inches from each end and make a mark at the top and bottom. These will be your fold lines. Use your ruler edge to help you fold the cardboard in towards the center.

Step 3- Measure your scrapbook paper to fit your tri fold board and cut out.

Step 4- Use your Aleene’s Tacky Tape runner to adhere your paper to your tri fold board

Step 5- Write out some fun facts about Volcanoes on white paper and then cut them out. Use more of your Tacky Tape Runner to attach them to your board. You can make small drawings and stickers to decorate your board.

Alice and I are very proud of our finished project! We hope you like it! We will be back with more Dolly Science fun later in the week!

  17. That’s really cute! I love the theme for this week too – science has always been a passion of mine, and as such most of my dolls’ interests are in fields such as computer science and astronomy.

  18. This is so cute! It’s a great idea too since you can also make AG sized cups out of the container.

  19. Karen, I love the doll sized volcano project! At my kids school everyone makes a volcano in 5th grade. My daughter would have loved to make this to go along with her school project!

  20. cute!

  21. BlondeLove says:

    How adorable! I would probably do mine on something else tho since I have a phobia of volcanoes ???????? not even sure what that’s called… Volcanophobia?

  22. I love your new doll Alice, she looks great in those glasses! Cool project too!

  23. Karen, this craft is adorable. Great job!

  24. Sharon Collins says:

    My kind of science project! Easy & I don’t need a paper egg carton. I need to work on this project.

  25. Fabulous! “And when I connect these two little wires, tiny puffs of smoke will…”
    Great idea! Thank you for sharing, Karen.
    Alice is lovely. Her name reminded me of the above quote.

  26. This is so creative! Thanks for sharing :)

  27. BlondeLove-Phobia of volcanoes is Ifestiophobia.I’ve heard weirder things,like
    Hippopotomonstrosisquippedaliophobia.Fear of large words.

    La Dee Da dolls never had a long run.Just a few years.

  28. Oh, well that explains it!
