Thanksgiving Paperdolls

http://kellishouse.blogspot.com/2007/11/monday-giving-thanks.html

I love paper dolls as many of you know. So it's only natural that when I decided to post on Thanksgiving related topics this week as a part of the "Giving Thanks" celebration I knew I would do one on Thanksgiving Paper Dolls. So without further adieu, here are some links to the dolls. Have fun!

You can find a lot of Betsy McCall paperdolls here, but for specifically Thanksgiving related Betsy McCall check here and here

And while these dolls aren't specifically Thanksgiving related, they are historically close (1704) in style to the Pilgrim's. And some of them are boys which are hard to find.

Paperdolls are a fun activity for busy hands during story readings or while your busy preparing that Thanksgiving feast!

The Betsy McCall are adorable! Thanks for the idea of giving children paper dolls to keep them busy. I just might have to find something along those lines.

I don't have a color printer though, so I can't print them out. :(

Thank you for the paper doll links...so cute!! As soon as we get color ink in our printer, I'll be printing them out. My girls and I love playing with paper dolls. :0)
Thank you for joining in the fun this week!
