PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Great for Mother's Day! Add a bit of folk art to your multicultural studies this year.

Matryoshka nesting dolls are a Russian celebration of family enjoyed by any culture. This “pull-out” card is a keepsake your students’ families will treasure for years to come!

WHAT’S INCLUDED HERE:
-FOUR different ready-to-copy student pages. Each page contains a set of five dolls with a unique traditional design for students to color.
-TWO “blank” doll sets with different scarf types for students to create their own designs.
-THREE pages of SUPER-DETAILED instructions that you and your students can follow. They have very specific diagrams, pictures and easy to read text.

WHAT YOU WILL NEED TO PROVIDE:
*Paper or cloth ½ inch ribbon - 30 inches PER DOLL. Any color or design will do – I buy what’s on sale!
If you are short of ribbon (or time) there is a shortcut version of this craft on page 14 without ribbon.
*Cardstock paper to print student copies of doll sets – these dolls need to be fairly sturdy.
*Cardstock paper or construction paper for doll backs.

I have made these with my 2nd graders for many years. They always need help with the ribbon part. I help them one at a time while the others are coloring. (It’s a nice application of measuring skills!) I would assume that 3rd and 4th graders would need less and less help. The direction pages are very user friendly.

BONUS FOR NON-TRADITIONAL THINKERS:
Matryoshka nesting dolls have been made in every image from Elvis to Big Bird. You and your students can expand your possibilities with the “blank doll.”
Ideas include:
-Make a set of characters from a favorite book,
-Make a set of community helpers
-Make a set of historical figures
-I’m sure you can think of more ideas!

I hope you and your class enjoy these as much as we do.
Thanks!
