Little Girl Paper Craft

This instructable will give you the step by step to create your own little girl out of paper using cheap and easy to use materials.  Your little girl could be Goldie Locks, Red Ridding Hood, Alice in Wonderland, Dorthy and many other characters from literature and games.

This is a very easy and cheap creation to add to any classroom lesson.  Anyone younger than second grade will need more than one day of work, and precut items might be helpful.  Anyone younger than 5th grade you may want to break the lesson up.  Do not fear, any K-12 grade level can be successful with this, you just might need to modify what steps they do.  Pre-cutting templates for instance might be helpful.  Working in small groups may be a good idea.  You name it modifications can be made and I'm more than happy to help you come up with those modification. :)

I dig the lesson ideas you mentioned. I'd have used these to illustrate abstract concepts like dramatic irony. Plus, they are very cute.

Oh that is a fantastic idea! Once you have the basic shapes down, the sky is really the limit to these little guys. I made another one today that I'll be posting instructions for later. They just have a huge realm of possibilities!
