Fancy Nancy written by Jane O’Connor and Illustrated by Robin Preiss Glasser is a book about precocious little Nancy who loves everything “fancy.” It’s become a phenomenon, endearing little girls across the nation. I thought the classic paper doll chain would be a perfect accompaniment for Fancy Nancy.
Large piece of construction paper cut in half vertically (4.5″ X 12″)
Crayons or markers
Cut a large sheet of construction paper in half, vertically (4.5″ X 12″). Fold it into 4 parts, accordion style.
Next draw the pattern. The pattern must extend to each side of the folds.
Then cut the pattern out.
Finally, color the dolls. We used the illustrations in Fancy Nancy for inspiration.
This simple craft is so much fun. Get crazy and creative!
Look how cute the dolls are on Eliana’s bulletin board.
Until next time…
