What to do on a cold, dreary winter day? Make homemade dolls with a made-up pattern and any materials you have around the house, of course!
I used eyeliner and lipstick for the doll faces and we cut off leggings with holes in the knees to make dresses for them. I didn’t want my son to feel I was favoring the girls, so I let him design an alien pattern and helped him sew it up. I think the girls may have had more fun playing with the batting than they had with the dolls!
