The weather is getting cooler here and I'm having a lot of trouble getting my little lover of summer into cool weather clothes. She's a t-shirt and skirt girl all the way. So in order to encourage her to wear warmer, longer clothes I had to get a little creative.
Before I show you what we did though I want to share a round-up of fun Barbie gifts for creative little girls that I put together. Miss M loves Barbie, but she really doesn't need more dolls; she has 15, most of which my mum picked up from a yard sale in Australia and sent over. So I wanted to get a little more creative and give her options for gifts that allow her to bring out her creative side too. Of course she already has the Barbie™ Photo Fashion Doll.
So, as I mentioned above Miss M turns up her nose at anything that she deems not cute enough to wear. So I went to Target while she was at school and picked up plain long-sleeved t-shirts that were only 3 for $18. When she came home we pulled the stencils out of the Barbie™ Fashion Design Sketch Portfolio and together we came up with some fun designs and painted each shirt using fabric paint.
These would make a great holiday gift for little girls, especially if you packaged up the Barbie™ Photo Fashion Doll with a copy of the Barbie™ Fashion Design Sketch Portfolio, a few plain shirts, and fabric paint.
Wouldn't this be a fun craft project for a Barbie Party too, the best part is that it could double as the party favor.
What you would need:
- Shirts for each of the party guests
- Barbie™ Fashion Design Sketch Portfolio (there are 5 stencil sheets inside)
- Barbie™ Photo Fashion Doll
- Fabric paint - don't forget the glitter fabric paint
- Paint brushes
- Cardboard to place inside each shirt when painting - cutting up cardboard boxes or cereal boxes would work perfectly for this.
Once each party guest has decorated their shirt hang them on a clothes line or rope using clothes hangers to dry.
After they are dry, set up a photo booth area using a white tri-fold display board, and then take a photo of each of the guests wearing their new shirt using the cool effects on the Barbie™ Photo Fashion Doll.
