Valentine Cookie Ornaments Perfect for Doll Play

american girl doll valentine cookies

I was at Hobby Lobby over the weekend and picked up the cutest pack of Valentine cookie ornaments that are the perfect size for doll play. They come in a pack of 12 and are $3.99. Keep an eye out for sales or 40% off coupons at your local craft store to get them at a discount! Since they are ornaments, you will need to remove the hook and ribbon before giving them to your girls for doll play.  The hook was easily removed by twisting it out with a pair of pliers. We didn’t have any doll plates, so I used a leftover canning lid as an improv plate.  They are a good size for your dolls. American Girl dolls Julie and Lauren are enjoying their yummy cookies!  If you have any other great finds for doll play that are related to Valentine’s Day, be sure to leave a … Continue reading
