I recently posted the magnetic alphabet matching game


and mentioned that I had also finished up a magnetic paper doll set to use on our road trip.  Here it is, all ready for my littles to play with next Friday!  I posted about it on my blog so if you're interested in finding out where I purchased the paper doll set or the magnetic paper, go have a look at that:


These are very easy, albeit time consuming to put together.  All you need is a printable set of paper dolls, magnetic paper, a pizza pan or cookie sheet (the $ store carries them where we live so very cheap), and coloring utensils.  I prefer the markers...and I tried coloring pencils and crayons also.

I made a set in girl...

and boy...

I have had the devil of a time keeping my girls away from these!  They are dying to play with them but I won't let them...and I'm hoping that's a good thing! 

Overall spent on the project: $20 for two sets
$10 for 4 sheets of magnetic paper
$8 printable (reusable) paper doll sets
$2 2 pizza pans

Remember, I made a set for 2 of my children because i don't want them to have to share one set.
