Craft: Heritage Dolls

You have to love living in a place with so much diversity. This winter, Dori’s 2nd grade class made Heritage Dolls. The teacher gave them a figure cut out of thick paper (they got to choose the color of paper), and the kids decorated the dolls with fabric relating to their backgrounds. I was amazed at the creativity and the vast diversity of the kids.

There’s not much to tell about the actual craft – cut out a figure in paper and think about what you want your doll to represent. Then use fabric, yarn, buttons and anything else you can think of, to decorate it.

We had a Sammurai warrior, a girl wearing a sari, a boy in Palestinian garb, a girl in an Italian peasant dress, and more.
