Our dolls are upstairs practicing for their next gymnastics competition, but while they are getting their workout in, I wanted to share this super easy, FREE (always good) “how-to” with you. I am not sure I would really call this a craft, but since it does involve tape and scissors, you might think so.
To make an award podium for your dolls you will need:
- 2-3 American Girl (or other boxes)
- Scissors (to cut out numbers)
- Numbers 1, 2, 3 (I made it easy for you – click here to print out the same numbers I used)
STEP 1 - Find a large box to use as the base. We used the box that McKenna’s gymnastics equipment came in.
STEP 2 - Place a smaller box on top. We used Chrissa’s Craft Table box and turned it sideways.
STEP 3 – Print out the numbers 1, 2, 3 from the file I linked to above. Then cut the numbers out.
STEP 4 - Tape the numbers on to the boxes as shown above.
Place your gymnasts, swimmers, ice skaters, track stars, talent show winners – or pet show winners in their appropriate places on the podium and you are done!! Easy!
In first place we have Gwen, second goes to Sonali and third goes to Alex. All three of them are wearing the retired purple velour leotard from American Girl.
I better go see how practice is going!
