The incidence of food allergies, intolerances, and sensitivities is climbing, which is why you’d be hard pressed to find someone who didn’t at the very least know someone with a food allergy, intolerance, or sensitivity even if not personally dealing with one. Some attribute this to our changing food supply, others to food-based additives contained within common medicines, and others to our modern, biologically changing gut microbe. Regardless of the reason, the possibility of food-related reactions makes the basics of eating together—an age-old custom of building community together—a sticky scenario. 

Popsicle Stick Paper Dolls

Popsicle Stick Paper Dolls, free printable

Of all the paper dolls I had as a kid, I remember one particular set the most. It was just a few simple outlines of people in outfits that came as a printed sheet that I cut out. I can’t recall if there were directions that said to do this or if I just did it, but I glued them all to popsicle sticks. Paper dolls and their little outfit tabs are notorious for bending and tearing, but these were simple enough that that wasn’t an issue; plus, already having outfits meant they didn’t need to be dressed up. Because they were so small, they were also easily portable within a checkbook blank box.

Remembering how fun those were, I designed a set of paper doll people that I think I would have had fun playing with as a kid, in hopes that there are some little folks who will have fun playing with them like I had fun playing with my old set.
