I love the book The Paper Dolls, written by Julia Donaldson and illustrated by Rebecca Cobb. We reviewed the book last year, and we've read it so many times since. Now Macmillan are celebrating the launch of The Paper Dolls in paperback by making the world's longest ever chain of paper dolls, aiming for a chain 3km long!
We decided to take part, and so I thought that I would share the details here in case you would like to too. It's very easy, you just need to visit the Paper Dolls World Record website, where you can choose to download a template for some paper dolls to colour in, or print a blank template to draw your own. Then you can either cut them out and post them to the address given, or scan them in and send them electronically. You have until the 31st August to send in your dolls, and Macmillan will donate 10p to Save the Children for every paper doll that joins the chain.
We decided to use the pre-drawn template, and Harry, Mia and I sat down for a colouring session. Harry really concentrated on his dolls, and he was so proud of them when he had finished.
We've sent them off, so I'll be keeping an eye out now to see how the record attempt goes! Let me know if you decide to take part too!
