Christmas with Betsy McCall
kev tiaj tus
'peace' in the Hmong language, spoken in China, Laos and Vietnam
Let's have a Betsy McCall paper doll Christmas blog!
First, the all important letter to Santa -
Next, she gets to help her Mom decorate the Christmas tree -
Betsy tries to wait up for Santa Christmas Eve -
and now it is Christmas morning! -
Through the years, Betsy went through several transformations;
as styles and fashions changed, so did her artists.
Here is Betsy, with her cousin Linda -
Betsy needs to write some thank you notes
for the wonderful presents she received -
can you help her?
It's time to visit Grandma!
and now it's time to visit Great-Grandma!
Let's help Betsy bake some cookies!
Betsy learns there is more to Christmas than receiving gifts -
Here are some fun holiday activities you can do with Betsy -
I hope you have had fun with Betsy McCall!
I wish she was still with us....
Did you know that all the cute clothes that Betsy and her family and friends wear are actual McCall's patterns?
Looking back through her paper doll pages is like a walk through fashion history, and a note on society's expectations!
(I love the leopard print undies on the 1955 cousin Sandy,
and the matching mom and daughter outfits!!)
Have a merry McCall's Holiday season!
