MLK, Jr. lapbook {repost}/paper dolls {how to}

This is a repost of a lap book that I posted about last year.
You can find the lap book here.

Today we are also reading books about MLK Jr. again, and making paper dolls/people in kindergarten. A few of my mom friends think this is too hard for them, but I assure you it really is easy. It is fun to color kids holding hands, and living together, like Martin Luther King, Jr. spoke about.

Here are some rough directions how to cut your paper. 

First take one sheet of 8 1/2 X 11" white printer paper. Fold it like a hot dog (short side), accordion fold, like this:

 Next, trim off the extra edge, and trim a square out of the bottom.

 Cut up the side, leaving one part on the fold connected. Trim out a rectangle for the arm, and then a circle for the head.

Go around the head, and trim the other side so that it is symmetrical, with an arm, angle for the skirt, and leaving one small part connected, then unfold them.

They should be all connected like this:
BOYS- a triangle for the legs.
You can even tape them together if you want, so they will be a longer line of ten children. Then let your child color them with crayons or colored pencils!

If you can cut paper snowflakes, you can make these! Enjoy!
