DLTK's Crafts for Kids
Russian Matryoshka Paper Craft

Contributed by Leanne Guenther

Matryoshka DollThis is a simple cut and paste paper craft that can be done "just for fun" or for a Russia theme -- Russia is hosting the olympics this winter which is what has inspired our learning a bit more about the country right now. 

Russian Matryoshka dolls are wooden "nesting dolls".  Each one opens up to reveal a smaller one inside.  Originally they were hand carved from a single piece of wood and then hand painted by artists -- artistic ones like this are really very beautiful.  Now days there are affordable, mass produced versions for tourists and children -- they're still cute and fun to play with!

Create your own design or use one of our pre-made templates to make your own paper Matryoshka Doll.
