Activities for Girls-Making a Doll Bed
For some activities for girls, look no further than the Treasure Box Kids Blog to find crafty ideas on children�s arts and crafts. A girl loves to have accessories for her doll. Activities for girls can be fun and they will be so proud of the doll bed that they made themselves. Why not make a doll bed from that old shoe box instead of discarding it?
You will need some fabric and pillow batting to make a bed that will fool anyone.
Take the bottom of the box and turn it upside down. Glue the fabric on to the box. A small flower print is very feminine. A hint: when using glue apply the glue to the box and then adhere the fabric to the box. Take the cover of the box and apply the same fabric to the inside of the lid. Now, glue the head board to the base of the bed.
If you have some lace, apply it to the bottom box and it will look like a very pretty bed shirt. When you are making the blanket and pillow you can use a contrasting fabric or white cotton. You can use your imagination to decorate the white fabric with fabric painting pens. If you want to sew the pieces together for the blanket or pillow you can. Or you can glue them with fabric glue. Be sure to put the side you want displayed to the inside. Turn them inside out and stuff. Now you can arrange the new comforter and pillow on this new bed.
