American Girl 18” Doll Mini Play Food Craft: Make Valentine’s French Crepe Platter

Valentines is around the corner and I bet your doll would enjoy some french crepes for a Valentines breakfast in bed!

We will show you to craft a mini pretend Valentines inspired crepe (which are kind of like thin pancakes!) platter complete with whip creme and berries on top.  See below to make one for your 18” doll or teddy bear!

  • Small doll size bowl/plate (we re-used a cleaned juice cap…or you can use a bottlecap or cut a circle plate out of paper or craft foam)
  • small piece of tan felt or tan craft foam (about 4 by 4 inches)
  • small piece of card stock paper for place mat (about 4 by 4 inches)
