Blast From the Past: All About Me Dolls

This is an annual tradition for our family at the beginning of the year. I have them all filed away. It’s fun to see the growth and changes in each child from year to year.

I have a paper doll that looks like this:

I also have a girl version–same figure, just with a skirt. It really doesn’t matter though.

The kids cut out and decorate the doll to look like them using any sort of medium they want–construction paper, yarn, stickers, markers, and felt are good ideas.

I like to display ours on the fridge for the whole year, and then put it in my child’s file when we complete our new one. It’s so fun to see how they grow and change. For example, when my son was three, I said, “When I grow up, I want to be…” And he shouted out, “HANDSOME!”

Here are some of ours from the past:
