Paper Dolls at The Kiosk

The Paper Dolls

The Paper Dolls

As well as all the other super holiday things we have planned (don’t forget our Playhouse at the Park next Monday, and our 500 words of summer story competition!) we are also taking part in a WORLD RECORD ATTEMPT! It doesn’t involve daring deeds or baked beans, instead we are helping to make the worlds’ longest paper doll chain! To celebrate the brilliant Paper Dolls book by Julia Donaldson and Rebecca Cobb, (if you haven’t read it – read it now! It’s an amazing book!) publishers Pan Macmillan are organising the record attempt – trying to get a chain of dolls 3km long!

That is 60 lengths of an Olympic swimming pool.
Or 270 London buses…
and about 11,500 of their paper doll templates!

The paper doll templates are available to download from the website, and you can choose the one to colour in, or the one where you can design your own dolls. You could try superhero dolls, or fairytale-themed dolls, or space man dolls…

And for every paper dolls chain we send in,  Pan Macmillan will donate 10p to Save the Children.

Work started last Monday at our storywriting workshop, and we’ve got a few templates for you to collect and colour in at the Kiosk. Alternatively, you can download and print the template here. You can send in your entry online, or by post- all the details are on the website. You can also hand in your dolls at the Kiosk and we will send them all off together. We’ve got a good collection already – but remember that for every set sent in, another 10p is raised for Save the Children – so the more of you that get creative, the more money we can raise for charity!

We have until 31st August 2013 to complete the record – so get colouring and designing, folding and cutting! You can check the doll-o-meter on the website to see how the record attempt is going. If you’d like to hand your dolls in at the Kiosk, please do so by Monday 26th August so we can send them in on time to be part of the 11,500 sets of dolls!
