The Paper Dolls, and a World Record contribution

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 paper dolls that we made. We were able to download a template for some paper dolls to colour in, or else you could print a blank template to draw your own. 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.

The world record attempt was a success! The final chain was 4549.7 metres long, and you can read about Guiness World Record Title here.
