American Girl Doll Play

American Girl Doll Play
I have a 6 year old who LOVES all things American Girl.  She saves every dollar to buy accessories, pours over catalogs, and is all about American Girl Doll play from sun up to sun down! Do your little ones love American Girl?  Have you thought about reading the books together? Check out this American Girl Mother-Daughter Book Club idea. 
 
Here are a couple of ways we play even more!

With her last catalog, I waited until she had thoroughly enjoyed it and then went through and cut out the dolls.

I ran each doll through my laminator (I have always used THIS one and love it).

Once laminated, I popped a few magnets on the back of each doll.

Once up on the fridge, she had a fun set of modern paper dolls to play with!
We later moved them to her large white board, where she drew scenes for the dolls to play in.

Another fun activity is to make pipe cleaner crowns.
 
M’s dolls are always being invited to tea parties she throws, so we thought it’d be fun to fancy them up!  I grabbed a pack of sparkly pipe cleaners at Hobby Lobby and we twisted and turned and shaped them into fabulous crowns!
