Fun with Vintage Paper Dolls
Found free using Google images and Google Books. There are many choices, vintage and contemporary; just print and cut. The ones pictured above are printed on regular paper, but card stock would make a sturdier paper doll. I use a lot of recycled items, so gluing these to thin cardboard from dry food boxes works just fine. I may laminate these with clear shipping tape and add magnets to the back.
These have the tabs on them, but she decided to lay them on the paper, interchanging the outfits on top of the dolls. If you look closely, the pets have hats on!
Paper dolls can glued on lined paper to make story boards. This is a wonderful tool for helping beginning writers with the mental imagery necessary for creative writing.
