    Here's how to make a chair for your dolls or stuffed animals. Choose any theme you like, such as animals, story characters, or imaginary creatures.

  • 3.

    To make the seat, cut cardboard into a large square with Crayola® Scissors. If you are using wrapping-paper rolls, cut them in half or thirds for chair legs. Stand four cardboard tubes (all the same length) on the corners of the cardboard. Attach them with Crayola School Glue. Dry.

  • 4.

    Turn the chair over so it stands on its legs. Glue two more cardboard tubes near corners of the seat to form the chair back. Dry.

  • 5.

    Cut smaller pieces of cardboard for slats on the back of the chair. Glue these cross pieces from one tube to the other. Dry.

  • 6.

    Wrap masking tape around the bottoms of the chair legs to add stability. If your chair has an animal theme, like this Leopard-Spot Doll Chair, these could be the paws!

  • 7.

    Cut out other cardboard parts for your chair, such as ears, a tail, fairy wings, or webbed feet, depending on your theme. Glue them on. Dry.

  • 8.

    Cover your art area with newspaper. Use Crayola Washable Kid's Paint and Paint Brushes to paint your chair. Dry.

  • 9.

    Add finishing touches to your chair such as spots or whiskers with a second coat of paint. Dry.

    Display your doll chair with stuffed animals or dolls---anything that is light weight.
