Directions

  1. Step 1

    Print the Dora Paper Dolls and have your kids color in with markers or crayons.

  2. Step 2

    Fold the paper carefully, accordion style, along the dotted lines.

  3. Step 3

    Kids can cut out the basic shape, leaving lots of white space around Dora, and parents can cut the fine details. Be careful not to cut the edge where Dora's hands meet.

  4. Step 4

    If you'd like, you can glue on swatches of fabric, glitter, and other decorations. Use small pieces of sticky tape to connect several chains together.

Tip: Decorate a doorway, window, or tree with a garland of several Dora doll sets taped together.
