Moana Paper Doll Craft

Make way for this super cute Moana paper craft that kids can make independently!

This Moana Craft would be super cute to make into a popsicle stick puppet (and then put on productions in your own shoebox puppet theatre), a Moana bookmark, or add to a pretty beach-inspired painting. I love the added interest of the accordion-style skirt, but you can opt for a flat skirt if that’s too tricky for your crew.

(You can also use this paper doll template to create any other Disney princess – you’ll just need to free-hand their dresses or hair using the base of our template.)

If you are hosting a Moana Birthday Party, this would be a low-key craft to either set up at the party, or print off a few of the templates and hand that out (along with some cardstock) as a non-junky party favor.

Materials Needed for a Moana Paper Doll

How to Make a Moana Paper Doll

Select colored craft papers as per the colors of the skin tone, dress and accessories of Moana.  Trace the body base on light brown colored paper, the dress patterns on cream or off-white papers, and the top patterns on different shades of red and orange papers; and the hair on dark brown colored paper. Cut out the traced patterns.

Cut a slit along the marked lines on the hair pattern.

Slide the top end of the head part through the slit from the bottom side of the hair. Apply glue to fix the head and the hair together.

Take the 2 skirt patterns (rectangles) and attach the zigzag bordered piece along the top side of the other rectangle piece.

Now use this attached rectangle papers to create small and even accordion folds.

Attach the small patterns on the square cutouts to complete the top of the Moana paper doll.

Attach the top on the top side of the body base pattern.

Take the accordion folded pattern and bring its straight end to the width same as the width of the body base and attach it right below the top pattern. Use a black marker pen to draw the eyes, nose and mouth of the paper Moana doll.
