New Free Printable Magnetic Paper Dolls for Hanukkah

Free Printable Magnetic Paper Dolls- Flock

Four of the six free printable Flock paper dolls are shown above, posing on my refrigerator

So, this was supposed to go up yesterday, but life got busy with travel.

Still, better late than never we have a new set of printable magnetic paper dolls in time for last minute gift giving (four of them are pictured above- my printer decided it really really didn’t want to keep printing magnetic sheets after I got through these ones, so the other two are waiting). As you can see, they have taken over my freezer door. In response to suggestions from some readers, I made the new Flock magnetic paper dolls larger for smaller hands to easily handle. There’s nothing specifically Hanukkah about the design, but I thought mermaids were a fun and fairly universal.

Anyway, I just bought a tin for my Flock paper dolls at the dollar store during a round of last minute shopping, though due to their larger size I recommend either printing one out on regular printer paper to take with you for sizing purposes or bringing the printed magnetic doll with you. Yes, you might get some funny looks (I did), but its good to know the paper doll will fit. When I was out tin shopping, I found these framesless magnetic whiteboards from Micheals for less then five dollars a piece. They will free up my fridge for important family photos and reminders.

Now, if you want to do something a little more festive (and who doesn’t?), Make it and Love it has this wonderful tutorial making magnetic paper dolls and then using on a cookie sheet for a play surface. She even show how to make a cover for the cookie sheet with fabric. The idea of covering the cookie sheet with fabric is ingenious. For kids, a magnetic cookie sheet might be the best option- it’s got a ridge around the edge to hold the pieces in place and they could play with it on the floor.

Just remember, that not all cookies sheets, tins or white boards are magnetic and the stronger the magnetism, the easier and better the paper dolls work. One of the reasons I like printable magnetic sheets over stick on magnetic sheets is that they seem to be stronger magnets.

    Hi again Rachel!

    I LOVE the mermaids! Someday I’m going to have to make up a set of magnetic paper dolls…

    I made some holiday paperdolls that are loosely based off of your Pixie and Puck design and thought I’d share them with you. I know you don’t celebrate Christmas, but there’s a Hannukah doll too. (I hope he’s authentic… I’m not Jewish, altho I have Jewish friends and have been to Israel twice. ) Here’s the link: http://thinkinlikegavroche.wordpress.com/2011/12/25/christmas-and-hanukkah-paperdolls/
