American Girl Doll Kanani Shaved Ice Hut Craft-Recycle A Box!

In one of our recent crafting summer camps here in Chantilly, Virginia we celebrated the Kanani www.cupcakesandlace.comAmerican Girl doll by crafting a shaved ice hut!

Any doll lovers out there know that Kanani is the Hawaii doll!  In the books her family owned a shaved ice stand/store.  We re-created our own with a Tide detergent cardboard box from Costco (or you can find one at BJ’s or similar stores!) and some craft supplies.

Try making one for your own doll!  Then invite your www.cupcakesandlace.comfriends and their dolls over to visit your new shop.
