I am an art teacher and have a group of 4th and 5th grade girls who stay in during recess once a week to make doll crafts. I am lucky enough to get to craft at work and crazy enough to give up my prep time to do it with kids! They call it 'American Girls Club' and it is a time for the girls to just be girls, working together, talking, sharing and helping each other out. Not all the girls have dolls, but that hasn't mattered. One girl said she was going to put a stuffed animal on her chair and another decided to make a pillow instead. I am glad that they have fun and that they are staying young and enjoying being girls!
The idea for the chairs we made came from the My Froggy Stuff channel on YouTube. My Froggy Stuff has clear video directions that are kid-friendly and easy to follow! Check her out if you haven't already- I love her!
We began with an oatmeal container, removed the paper and cut it into the desired shape. We used paper towel to fill the seat. Simply tuck in the fabric of your choice.
Then you can add a second coordinating fabric seat - just tuck it in around the edges.
