Redressing photos with paper cut out dresses makes a fun craft activity for children
One night after dinner my children and I were rummaging through old photos when we decided it would be fun to cut out some faces and re-dress them with the paper dresses from an activity set my daughter was given. Below is the original magnetic dress up kit. It had been a fun activity for my daughter but she was happy to use it for something new.
My children helped cut out familiar faces of me, their dad, Mimi, Poppy and friends. They then selected what outfits each person would wear and glued them on A3 sheets.
The pictures look great on their playroom wall. It's too funny seeing Poppy in a pink sparkly dress. And it's been an awfully long time since I slipped on a long purple formal dress!
If you don't have pre-cut dress-ups handy, you could use coloured paper or pencils and crayons to design your own fashion outfits.
