Camp Descriptions

Make A Pioneer Rag Doll

suggested grades completed: 2-5

dates and times: June 17, 10-11am

Laura Ingalls Wilders' "Little House on the Prairie" books teach us about daily life as a pioneer in the 1870s. Join us as we create a boy or girl rag doll from that time using cloth and yarn. I will show you how to clothe the doll with a traditional apron and scarf or a more modern superhero cape! 

Taught by Kristin Meyer, LPS Paraeducator and Gifted Mentor

  • 2 pieces coordinating fabric, approx. 12" x 12" each (thin is better than thick)
    scissors, sharp enough to cut cloth and yarn
    yarn or string, 8 pieces about 8 inches long
    4-8 cotton balls or small scraps of cloth balled up
    ruler or tape measure
    pins or tape
    pattern for clothing

  • Optional to print out. If you look at the pattern you can probably cut out the pieces by eyeballing it.
