Many little girls love everything there is about Barbie. They like the fashion and beauty that goes along with these dolls. They also like to pretend to be adults. Their imaginations run wild. If your child likes Barbie dolls, then you can have fun crafts that they can do in order for them to have even more fun with this popular doll brand.
One of the best things you can have your child do is be creative and use their imagination. The main theme of Barbie is pink, so you can do crafts that use this pink theme. A great craft that your daughter can do is make her own Barbie doll. This does not require any plastic doll parts. All she needs is a piece of paper and some coloring utensils. Ask her to draw her favorite doll. She could even draw herself as a Barbie doll. The options are endless. This can add more fun without having to buy her a new doll. You can also have her draw separate clothing on a different piece of paper. If they are cut out, then they can be used to clothe her paper doll, adding even more fun to the experience.
If your child is interested in the clothing aspect of Barbie dolls, then you and she can work together to make clothing that resembles the type of thing that Barbie would wear. This also teaches your daughter how to sew and be creative with fabric and ribbon. This is an especially good craft if you, as a parent, already have the sewing machine and the skills to use it.
