Disney fans are going to love this Paper Princess Ariel Paper Doll Craft! It is perfect for an afternoon craft session to pair with the Disney The Little Mermaid movie!
When you need a way to keep the kids busy, and you want to encourage creativity, paper crafts are the way to go. I love them because they require simple supplies that you likely have on hand. They also are usually easy for younger kids, and can be made more challenging for older kids who will enjoy embellishing their creations.
This Princess Ariel paper doll craft is super easy thanks to the included template. With only a few supplies like paper, glue, and markers, this little doll comes together easily. Make a few to share a smile with a friend, or to have a good old fashioned paper doll dramatic play session.
This is a great way to add a little Disney Princess magic to the day and your space. These are so cute, your little crafters will be proud to display them around the house for all to admire! Print a few extra templates off for later, because this will be a craft your kids want to revisit!
I recommend using mint green, purple, and orange paper to make the doll. Chose a colour of paper that you prefer for the skin tone. If your kids are older, they might enjoy adding to the costume you dress Ariel in, so stickers, sequins, and beads can be added, or you can make the doll as I did!

Trace the hair pattern on the orange paper, the body base on the paper selected for the skin tone; trace the fin and tale on mint and green colored paper and the top on purple paper. Cut out the traced patterns nicely.

Cut a slit along the traced line inside the hair template.

Take the body base cutout and slide the head part through the slit from the bottom side of the hair. Use glue to fix the position of the hair and head once they are placed nicely.

Attach the top pattern on the top side of the body base and the tale pattern below the top, on the body base.
