Let’s Go TEAM!!! Football season is right around the corner and since my daughter Megan is now a cheerleader at the high school, I hear her practicing her cheers from across the house daily! To get in the back to school spirit, today’s doll play activity will feature our cheerleaders McKenna and Olivia and dance team member Marisol. Use the printable below to make a pennant in your team colors and do a cheer themed word search.
McKenna is in the spirit of the game showing off her team pennant (made from the printable below) and her new pom-poms. To make the pom-poms, take tissue paper or ribbons and cut into to strips about 8″ long. The more strips you cut (or pieces of ribbon you use) the fluffier the poms will be. Tie a string or elastic around the center of the stack of paper strips, poof and you have your own pom poms.

OH NO!!! The hazards of doing a photo shoot with curious pets around! Our cat Fritz manage to knock over McKenna and Olivia in a matter of seconds.
Have fun with today’s activity and stop back tomorrow for even more 100 Days of Doll Play fun!
