A while ago I was looking for easy, small quiet activities for my son, and decided to make him a paper theater type of adventure. Its not really a paper doll, its a paper action hero. I love that he comes with radio operator, aviator, and astronaut outfits. Plenty of stuff for hours of imaginative play. He could easily be printed on magnet paper for play on the fridge, or printed onto transfer paper to be ironed on felt for a flannel board. The boy is from a series published in 1925 and the artwork was done by Orpha Klinker – it is now in the public domain.
I made a book for easy transportation, and tried to think of good backgrounds to go with the outfits for the pages. And then I saved it all into a .pdf file so you can make your own too: my paper adventure book for boys. The first page has all the directions on how to print and put your book together. Enjoy!
