American Girl DIY computer
I had thought of this DIY computer last year when I was 9 years old.
I wanted my doll to call her friends like I call my friends. I decided it was time to take action.
So the first thing I did was gather my supplies.
Then I tried to find a post card. Feeling very lucky that I had actually found one because we hardly ever have post cards in our house.
I proceeded to ask my mom if I could use this lucky post card. I was feeling even luckier then ever when my mom said YES!!!..
Woohoo!!!!.. I was on track to victory.
I was not exited for the next step to making this computer because I really needed some cardboard.
We usually are always using are cardboard boxes for holding wood chips after stacking up the firewood.
But my mom had found a good sized peace of cardboard that I could use.
So all the supplies I used for this project were.
4: colorful paper
5: post card
8: paint brush
9: a simple glue stick for school
10: and a happy attitude
The first thing I did was put the post card on top of my cardboard.
Then I traced around the post card on to the cardboard like you do when you have a little sister and you trace her hand on to a card to send to your grandma.
Then you cut out on the traced lines you just made.
After you cut out your cardboard then you are going to want to fold your cardboard in half.
Then you will get some regular or colorful paper for the outsides of your computer.
Now you have to glue your colorful paper onto your computer.
I put my post card onto my cardboard and cut it to fit onto my computer.
The next step is to glue you lucky postcard to your cardboard for the picture.
Now you are going to need to cut out four long pieces of cardboard and paint them.
You are going to want to paint them black.
Now the waiting begins. I am personally not a patient person so I used quick drying paint. Either I had fast drying paint or the time was a rolling.
Once it has dried you are going to want to cut them out to fit around your picture.
Then once that is done you will glue them onto your picture that’s on your computer.
Now get a ruler and a pencil and don’t forget to grab your computer and trace lines onto your keyboard. (Or you could make squares on your key bored)
Now you are going to put the alphabet in those squares and also numbers like ( 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,0) onto your key board
And you have just made your first doll computer.
Now get the address book and get your doll some friends.
I hope you have enjoyed making a doll computer for your America Girl.
I really hope that while you were making this computer for your doll that you always had a smile and a positive attitude.
