Karen here and I am so excited to share today’s craft with you in time for this busy camping weekend. While you observe Memorial Day weekend, I thought you may like a fun and easy craft that you can do to add to your doll’s food collection.
To make your own you will need:
- Grocery Store Flyers
- Clear Tape
- Glue Stick or Aleene’s Tape Gun
- Fun Foam
- Pom Poms
- Plastic Baggies
Step 1- Gather all your supplies and cut out food shapes from the flyer that are close to scale doll food size. I picked items that I thought the dolls would like to take camping, hot dogs, sausages and lunch meat as well as bread. Cut them very close to the line.
Step 2- Use your glue stick or your Aleene’s glue runner on the back of the meat you have cut out. Press them on to a sheet of fun foam. This gives them a bit of depth. Cut them out and place a side for step 3.
Step 3- Unroll some packing tape and cover each item center face down on the tape. Then wrap your excess tape around the back of your food item. Trim the edges and repeat on all your dolls meat products, then they are ready to play!
To make the bread:
Step 1- Cut out the bread bag shape from your flyer. Insert it inside a clear plastic bag. Lay white or brown pompoms on the back side of the image you cut out. Close and fold the bag and either tape or glue your bag shut.
Step 2- Use a twist tie to close the bag where the bread tie would normally go, then trim the excess from the top of the bag. You can then squish the pompoms into place to give your bread bag volume. Now your bread bag is ready to use!
The bagged salad is likely my favorite item I made this week! I was so excited to find an add for it and it fit the small bead bags I got at the dollar store! Here is how to make yours:
Step 1- Cut out your shape and tape it to the front of the small bead bag or you can put it inside a regular plastic bag if you don’t have the one I used.
Step 2- Fill the bag with green and orange pompoms, these are your salad mix. Close the bag for the bead bag and you are ready to play! If you are using a regular plastic bag, trim the bag to fit, fill it and tape the edges closed!
I had so much fun with this craft and I can not wait for my nieces to play with this set when they stop by! I was sent this wonderful cooler from My Dolls Life to review and it get’s my stamp of approval! We love it!
