Paper Doll Coloring PagesBelow you will discover a fun bunch of Paper Doll Coloring Pages. There are two little girls and one little boy with an assortment of clothes that you can color. There are even three cute pets. These paper dolls are based on designs found in Ladies’ Home Journal magazines printed in the early 1900’s. They were originally designed by Helen A. Haselton.

TIPS: You may want to print the dolls and their pets on card stock to make them nice and sturdy. I have added a base for the dolls that you can wrap into a circle behind each doll and glue or tape in place. This should allow them to stand on their own. Another thing you can do for some of the objects, is to paste a strip of thin cardboard or old file folder at the back, slightly bent to form an easel, so that the objects can stand. Or you can just cut around the feet. The clothes can be printed on regular paper and cut out. Make sure to cut carefully around the tabs. You’ll see dotted lines on the hats. Use an Exacto blade to cut along the dots to fit the hats on the dolls’ heads.
