I can so well relate to my girl's love for all things tiny, because I too was that girl. In fact, that little girl must still be in me, as I found out this weekend when Rebecca had the idea of decorating her somewhat sparsely furnished doll's house. Make tiny doll-size things? I didn't need to be asked twice!
The poor dolls seemed in urgent need of all sorts of things, but when Rebecca and I set out to make a crafting plan, it turned out that they primarily needed toys and sweets. Sweets especially - you can't imagine how hungry you get when you are a doll. So, we made cornstarch dough.
Cornstarch dough is a fabulous material: pure white, doesn't stick and is very malleable. We followed this recipe, and found that we needed to add a bit more water than called for, and that on our gas stove set to the minimum, it was ready in merely 5 minutes. Also, our cornstarch dough tended to dry out almost too quickly while we worked it, which we remedied by dipping our fingertips into water before shaping it. We made cornstarch ducks, teddy bears, and bunny rabbits for the dolls to play with. And we made croissants, puddings, tarts, fruit, cakes, cookies, and pizza for them to eat.
I rather liked the tiny things all in white, but Rebecca was horrified when I suggested leaving them "plain", so we painted them. And she was right: it was so much fun making our cornstarch things become tiny look-alike toys and food items!
It's safe to say that Rebecca's dolls will never be bored or hungry again.
