Shoe Box Doll Bed
Help your kids make a doll's bed fit for a queen -- all you'll need is a shoe box and some paint!

How to Make a Shoe Box Doll Bed:
Step 1: Make the base of the bed from the shoe box lid. Turn it upside down, and help kids cut out a section of each side. The corners become the legs of the bed.
Step 2: The bottom piece of the shoe box holds the doll. Help kids cut down the sides to 1 inch.
Step 3: Use the cut-out ends of the box to make the bed's headboard and footboard. Cut them into a fancy design.
Step 4: Cover your work surface with newspaper. Paint each piece with poster paints. Let the paint dry.
Step 5: Glue the bed to the legs. Glue the headboard and footboard to the bed.
Furnish your doll's bed with a pillow, mattress, and bedspread!
