My parents cleaned out the basement this past weekend and came across my dolls from around the world collection. My grandma started this collection for me when I was a little girl and I got one almost every year. I knew the basement just didn’t do them justice, so I started thinking about what I could do with them that would honor their specialness. I decided to display them in my classroom as art, because they are so beautiful. Then I thought, why not make it educational too! This is art education, after all. So I printed out art from each of the dolls’ cultural backgrounds and displayed them together on a map. I think the dolls have found themselves a happy home!
