Stop Motion with American Girl Dolls
My daughter adores making stop motion videos of her dolls. I love that she is using her imagination and making up fun stories! You can give your AG lover all of the tools he/she needs to make their own awesome stop-motion videos.
This is the camera my daughter uses most often. It hooks up directly to your computer and comes with a free software that makes it easier to see what happened in the last stop-motion frame.
There are also apps available that make great quality stop-motion videos. A tripod makes this much easier.
This book gives great instruction (especially for kids) on how to do stop motion videos.
Activity Gift Ideas for American Girl Doll lovers
American Girl Magazine- This is a magazine that girls AND their moms will love! It has crafts, articles, stories, activities, it is a high-quality magazine and my daughter is ecstatic every time it comes. It is a little pricey but completely worth every penny!
American Girl Cookbooks: We have bought our fair share of kids’ cookbooks over the years and The American Girl cookbooks are exceptionally good. They have recipes that aren’t too complicated, don’t have crazy ingredients, and taste great! There are also TONS to choose from!
There are lots of things you could pair with these cookbooks to make an adorable gift.
Add a cute cake stand
Add these adorable glass mini coupe dessert dishes
Add Cookie Cutters
Add this super cute apron
Add some kid sized hot pads
Sewing Gift for AG Dolls
I bought my daughter an 18″ doll clothes pattern, along with the fabric and notions to make one of the outfits. She had so much fun sewing her own doll clothes!
This is a great sewing machine for kids! We tried a few other (cheaper) sewing machines (which didn’t actually SEW for real, what?!) and this was the one we ended up loving. It has all the functionality of a normal machine (except a light). My daughter loves to sew with it!
I hope these ideas work for your AG loving kid!
