Did you know that the first week in August is National Clown Week? Neither did I!! I did a quick internet search and found quite a few schools that teach Circus Art and Clowning Art. Most of us have dressed up like clown at least once in our lives, and some of you might even clown for a living. So, in the spirit of clowns, why not plan some fun activities around clowns and clowning. Here are a few suggestions for you and your American Girl dolls.
Color and decorate your room with clown pictures: Here is a link for some you can download and print.
Make a simple clown hat: using a triangle piece of poster board, adhere the sides together so that there is a point at the top. Decorate the hat with paint, markers and stickers. Be sure to add a colorful pom-pom on the top. With a hole punch, make 2 holes on either side of the bottom and tie string or colorful ribbons to each side which will tie around your chin. Don’t forget to make one for your 18” doll! She won’t want to be left out of the fun!
