How to Make a Doll Picnic Table

Hello, I wanted to share with you how to make a doll sized picnic table. This table can be used for camps, cafeterias, as a dinning room table and, of course, for picnics.
You will need:
Thick Cardboard          A Ruler          A box
A pencil          A Box Cutter          A Doll

Start by positioning your doll on her side on the cardboard. 
Place the box above her mimicking a table

Trace the legs of the picnic table and the base of the table top.
Then get out your ruler and make all measurements precise.

Here are my measurements for the left side of the table . . .

 . . . and the right side

Then use your box cutter to cut it out (parental supervision suggested!)
Flip it over and trace the other leg. Cut it out too.

To make the bench. Line up the width of the leg with the length of 
your table top to make a strip of cardboard. Cut out two.

Also cut out a large piece of cardboard for your table top by tracing your box.

Get our your hot glue gun and glue away!

Finished product.

I spray painted mine white.

Four dolls fit nicely.

Lunch time - Delicious!
