Back-to-School Doll Size Finds

Many people have gone back to school already, but maybe your dolls have a couple days of summer left! I’ve gathered some back-to-school themed doll size finds for you today.

First up are these adorable three-ring binders! They come in five colors — dark blue, green, pink, light blue, and white (not shown). I got them at Staples for 50 cents apiece!

The binders are the perfect size for 18″ dolls!

They have a plastic sleeve on the front, just like the real thing.

It comes with lots of little slices pieces of paper.

The rings come apart. It’s hard the first couple of times, but after that, they come apart easily.

Next are the mini composition notebooks. They’re a little too big for dolls (let’s face it, most things are either too big or too small), but they’re still cute. I decorated mine with stickers and washi tape to give them some extra personality.

There’s lots of lined pages inside. Many stores stock these — Target, Staples, Dollar Tree, etc. I got a two pack at Staples for 50 cents.

Then there’s these clipboards. The one on the left is wooden, but I painted it.

You can find these at Michael’s or Hobby Lobby.

The other type of clipboard comes with real sheets of lined paper, with a little strip of stickiness at the top. You can find them at Michael’s in a large variety of colors and patterns.

They have a magnetic strip on the back.

Moving on to some things your dolls might keep in their backpacks!

Mini tape holder

First up is a mini tape dispenser. It has real tape and actually works! I got mine at Party City for 25 cents.

You can get these tiny scissors (that can cut thin paper!) in cheap sewing kits at Michael’s.

If your dolls are staying up late studying for a test, they could sure use this lamp! The light bulb works and the lamp bends at the joints. You can find these at Dollar Tree.

Then there’s these super-cute art supplies that actually work. You can buy them on Amazon.

They’re the perfect size for American Girl dolls!

See what I mean?

The rest of this post is about simple school-related crafts you can make for your dolls.

These folders are as easy as folding a 6 and half x 4 and half piece of paper hamburger-style, and then folding the bottom inch up.

The pencils are just painted toothpicks with one end cut off, and you can see how to make the mechanical pencils here: http://funwithagfan.blogspot.com/2013/08/back-to-school-series-craft2-doll.html

  1. Would! I was at staples the other day, and I didn’t see any of those binders. Too bad! And the mini crayons are my favorite of your finds!

  2. I’ve heard about the mini binders but I thought they were $5 each! 0.50 sounds like a great deal to me, I will have to pick a few up. I have the little pixar style lamp and I love it! It goes perfectly with the desk and computer I have for my dolls. The mini tape is cute. I forgot about posting about the ag fan meetup- I will once I start typing up a new post, sorry!
