Paper Doll Chains

We made these folded paper dolls today with two of the older elementary students this afternoon after writing letters to the new president. They made fat dolls, thin dolls and even a
row of smiley faces.
To make:
Fold paper like a fan (or an accordion) then draw the shape of a doll on the top layer. The trick is to make the drawing touch both edges and not to cut vertically on the fold. If you only want a pair of dolls like the ones to the right, fold a scrap of paper in half and make sure that the drawing only touches one side.

Yes that sounds fun.
I have been thinking of all kinds of things to do with these. I'm picturing a long row of different shaped bodies done in a nice dark paper on my bedroom wall.
