Kid Tea Party

I've done this with my friends and dolls before. Each kid and doll gets a regular cup and plate along with any snack and drink that you like. Decorate the table (each kid can make a place mat) and set things up. You can even make place cards for kids and dolls.

Fabric Animals

Want a fun idea? How about making an animal out of fabric. I tried it once and you could too.

First you pick an animal that you can draw or that you have a picture of. Draw your picture of the fabric and cut it out. Decorate it with fabric markers or crayons. Put your new friends in a special place like a picture frame for safe keeping.
