Peg dolls Winter Wonderland

We never get bored of playing with peg dolls and making cardboard toys. It’s icy cold outside so for more indoor fun to survive the winter without boredom, our DIY peg dolls and cardboard slotted animals are ready to take you on a winter adventure! We have a lovely deer and a big moose from a winter forest, plus a polar bear and huskies visiting from the arctic.

Simply print and cut out the templates and trace them onto cardboard saved from brown boxes. We have many from Christmas deliveries.
Cut with a craft knife and adjust the slot sizes depending upon your cardboard thickness. Parents will need to cut the cardboard as thick boards are not so easy to cut. Children can start decorating the pieces as you cut.

Once cut out and decorated, you can slot the pieces together to create all the standing animals and the sled in the picture.

How about riding the polar bear like Lyra in His Dark Materials or enjoying a sled ride with the huskies.

We took out the peg dolls we made before, but they weren’t wearing enough clothes for this cold weather, so we gave them warm coats and scarves.
You can simply cut a small piece of paper to wrap around their body and add a little yarn to tie around the neck.

Keep warm on your icy adventures and don’t forget to be back in time for a cup of tea!

  1. I just tried to post, and the screen blippled! It is worth saying twice, though. This is Fantabulous! I love the selection you have created. I might just have to make an extra set for on my desk. I need to click over to the instructions for peg dolls, but they look as if they were made with clothespins that have been cut or sanded down on the one end. I am “financially challenged” and am truly thankful for all that you share. Blessings to You and Yours, Susie, Port Huron, Michigan

  2. Love this idea – thanks for the great printables! Quick question – what do you use to cut your cardboard? If you use an x-acto knife, which blade do you find works best? Thanks!

  3. Dear Mr. Printables, I have spent many happy hours over the last two days
    learning about Haunted House doll houses, peggy people, and Winter Wonderlands. This last year, almost to the day, was overwhelmingly demanding and joy deadening handling the aftermath of a fire which thankfully only took out the garage. I decided to give myself a big vacation to get healthy and happy again. Finding your website has filled me with
    excitement and possibilities and creative juices anew!!!! Thank you for creating this, for having fun doing it and making it joyful and supportive for your life, too. I, too, am alright but not rich, but nevertheless would like to
    be supportive. if you are willing to put a paypal donation box on the website, would that meet some of your needs for appreciation and support? Thank you, thank you.

  4. I would like very much to link this project in an upcoming blog post, and to use your photo along with the link. Can you tell me how I go about getting your permission to do this?

  5. I love these toy designs and want to print the templates but I can’t find the link for the templates anywhere on this page. I’ve scoured the page and t’s driving me crazy! Please help – am I missing them?
