Hello, we are Paper and the Pea. We are excited to guest post here on Craft Passion! She is so talented. 🙂
Paper and the Pea specializes in free printables for kids, crafts, and fun. We are two sisters with three kids total all under the age of four!
Today’s little printable is perfect as a preschool matching game or it can be used to tell a story.
Below is a tutorial using blocks. But you can also use this printable on cardstock.
One dice will have all heads. The other dice will have all bodies.
• Decoupage (mod podge)
• Sponge brushes
• 2 pcs. of 1 inch unfinished blocks
• Paper and the Pea printable
• Optional/recommended gloves/sandwich bag to cover hands while you decoupage
2. Download and print printable.
3. Cut out all the squares.
4. Using sponge brush – decoupage a light coating on the block and carefully place the square paper on the block. You can also decoupage the paper and paste it on the block. Make sure that the neck of the doll is lined up to the edge of the block.
5. Brush another coat a little more thickly this time on top of the paper.
6. Continue to do this for the other four bodies/heads leaving one space blank.
7. Let dry for 30 minutes on the blank space.
8. Do step 4-7 for 5 of the doll heads leaving a blank space. This time make sure the bottom of the necks lines up to the edge of the block. This ensures there are no gaps.
9. After the other sides have dried you can place the last piece on the block. Do this for the body block and then the head block.
• Roll the dice.
• Try to match the head with the same colored bowtie/burette to the same colored dress!
• This game can be played alone or with multiple people.
We also used the blocks as story cubes. My daughter and her little best friend simply enjoy changing the doll heads and clothing.
Hope you enjoy!
