Barbie And Her Friends Go To School

 Little Yellow Bicycle designed some cute school themed papers which sparked an idea in my head. Since Barbie and Ken  need to attend yet one more year of pretend school I made them a classroom just for them. I can hardly wait for Jayden and Sofie to visit so we can play with this doll sized movie set.
 Little Yellow Bicycle's 'Makin The Grade' locker paper is perfect for my imaginary school walls.
 I cut the lockers doors so they open up like real lockers. I will let my grand daughters deside on how to
decorate the insides.
 I added a few small details to make playing school fun.
Hopefully the notes on the bulletin board will spark someone's creativity in coming up with social scenarios for Barbie and her friends. School dance? Football game? Chemistry lab? Lead singer in the choir? School play? Detention hall? Swim tryouts? Barbie will be sure to have a reason to change her outfits over and over.

I will be on the lookout for things to make more movie sets for Barbie. She needs a kitchen, bedroom, library, theatre, and who knows what else! I think I like making movie sets in miniature more than sewing those skinny clothes.

Becky- You could bring little Johnathon and we could play dress up with him. Or just hold him and coo at him for hours. That would be fun!!

Yay! Dress up with Johnathon would be fun, and he would love it if we cooed at him and held him! :D
