Korner’s Folly is known for its distinctive architecture and design. If you were to decorate the Folly, what colors would you choose? Not just for kids – everyone can enjoy creating their own interior designs! Victorian color schemes tended to be jewel-toned, dramatic, and extravagant, but you can take artistic license with our downloadable templates. We recommend colored pencils, but any medium will do!

Paper Dolls date back to at least A.D. 900, described in a Japanese ceremony that involved a paper figure and folded paper kimono which were put to sea in a boat. In the 1840’s, boxed paper doll sets were produced in Europe and exported to America for lucky children. These sets featured likenesses of European royalty, including Queen Victoria and renowned ballerina Marie Taglioni. Creating and playing with paper dolls helps children practice manual dexterity, as well as learn about history, fashion and art. You can make your own Victorian-era Paper Dolls using the link below:
