Get these printable paper dolls ready for winter with a free set of warm and festive winter clothes!
What’s winter like, in the way of clothes? Well, that depends on where one lives… But, overall, in many northern places , it’s usually colder than the rest of the year, with rain and snow. On the other hand, in many countries of the world, winter is also a time for celebrations! Christmas, Hanukkah, New Year, and other more localized festivities all happen at around the same time.
When making winter clothes for the paper dolls, I tried to create outfits that would reflect both of those realities – the cold weather and the holidays.
You can find a link to the free templates at the end of the post!
Winter Paper Dolls Feature
- free paper doll templates (four coloured + four colour-your-own dolls)
- free templates for three full costumes (coloured + colour-your-own costumes)
The set includes a winter parka, a scarf, a hat, and a pair of winter boots for cold outdoors. It also comes with a set of clothes, both for a boy and a girl, that are supposed to be festive and warm.
As always, there are four dolls included, and you can mix and match the outfits.
I like the bright colours for winter clothes. They help to fight the gloom of our northern winters. But if your children wants different colours? There are colour-your-own options – both for the dolls and for the clothes.
Would you like more festive clothes? You can check out this set, where our paper dolls have dressed up as winter gift-bringers from all over the world – Santa Claus, Saint Nicholas, Jultomten, Befana, Krampus, and many others!
Need more warm clothes? You can mix and match the winter set with our free printable autumn paper dolls.
How to Make Paper Dolls
To make the dolls, simply print all the templates on sheets of card stock and cut them out with scissors and/or hobby knife.
Paper dolls are charming old-fashioned toys, and they are great for developing fine motor skills in children. But if your children are not interested in fiddling with tabs, there is an easy solution for making them into magnetic dolls.
You can even laminate them for longevity! This is what I do for my three-year-old daughter, who loves playing with paper dolls, but can’t be guaranteed to not have sticky fingers.
