American Girl Doll Drinks!

These are adorable! We made these at our Brownie meeting last week to help finish our Doll Try it. I also ordered extra supplies so that the girls could make more with their friends who all have American Girl Dolls. They were a huge hit! Lindy created many different versions of the "lemonade" drink and also different types of sundaes and shakes.
They are so simple, small plastic glass, cute fruit erasers, clear glass beads to look like ice cubes, and coffee stirrers for the straws, and clear tacky glue poured over the top to hold it all together and look like liquid. They all took it to the next level. Paige created some that looked like they had spilled by pouring some glue down on a piece of plastic and letting it dry. Lindy put glitter glue into the straws to match the "ice cream color" so her dolls will look like they are drinking. We also have plain ice water for these hot summer days! We have more foods to create for the dolls this summer and I am as excited as the girls! We had a ball with this one!

Thank you for your post. I saw this craft on makingfriends.com a while back and have wanted to try it. I have a home party business for American Girl dolls, and I thought this would be great for upcoming summer parties. I was wondering - how long does it take for the glue to dry?

Shari - At the Brownie meeting we let them dry for 2 hours and they were not quite dry. We put them in ziplock bags to go home and tried to keep them upright. Some spilled which is how my daughter came up with the idea of a spilled drink, glue with the beads and a piece of the "fruit" pouring out of the cup. They are cute too! I have the supplies to make the pies from Making Friends as well, looks like a project for a rainy day. Love your clothes on your site!
