Paper Doll Template to Print and Color


These free black and white paper doll templates are fun to print and color and will keep you and your child busy for hours.

I recommend printing them on thicker paper if you have it, but regular computer paper is just fine too.

You can print them out on regular computer paper, decorate and color them, and then paste them onto cardboard to make the paper dolls sturdy.

Printable paper dolls to color yourself will save you money on printer ink and let you get in touch with your creative side!


Send Them to Your Sponsored Child!

Do you plan on sending a paper doll to your sponsored child? I am sure he or she will appreciate the extra special touch you give to it by coloring and decorating it yourself.

Alternatively, you can print out the dolls and send them to your sponsored child blank so he or she can color them in. Just be sure to mount it on a thicker backing and cut it out for them first.

More About the Paper Doll Templates

They are about  4.5 inches wide and 6 inches tall and come bald with various hair styles that you can print and color. I currently have posted only girl paper doll templates but will get the boy paper dolls posted soon.

    Hi Justine, I am fascinated by the creativity you have!
    These cute paper dolls are a fantastic idea for my little girl in Ghana.
    Is there any chance in getting the printeables without having to register for facebook, twitter or google+? Because I am not registered in any of these social networks.
