More Career Paper Dolls

by Hannah Holt »


I’ve had these dolls mostly finished for about a week, but sometimes the homestretch takes the longest.

Without further delay, here are all the paper dolls I’ve made so far (click the links for the pdf version):







If you don’t see a doll you suggested, I’m still working more. Someone suggested I add a few boys in the mix, and I agree that I should. Maybe I’ll get on that for the next round. Here are the other suggestions I still have in queue:

  • Politician (president or senator)
  • Marine biologist
  • Truck driver/heavy machine operator
  • Astronaut
  • Electrician
  • CEO
  • Army general
  • Navy seal
  • Chef
  • Architect
  • Artist
  • Concert musician
  • Clergy member
  • Farmer

If I somehow missed your suggestion or if you have a new suggestion, please leave it in the comments. You can also leave comments about this project and other projects on my Facebook Page.

I hope you enjoy!

  1. Nancy

    How about an Engineer? (Civil, Mechanical, Chemical, Electrical)

    • Hannah Holt

      Thanks, Nancy. I’m a civil engineer by training and have an engineer under the building paper dolls. But I should probably make that more apparent. :)

  2. Rebecca

    Oh my gosh, Hannah, these are amazing! Thank you so much for the neuroscientists! My students are going to be beside themselves! (Also, I can’t wait to share them with my neuroscientist friends!) The other school counselors that I have shared your earlier paper dolls with have loved them, and I’ll pass along these too.

    How about Sports Statistician and Sports Writer, to help kids understand that there are many sports-related jobs that require

    Another great pairing could be Archaeologist and Archivist (My daughter, Megan, is an archivist for the Ancient Egypt Research Associates and has a very cool job! She works with archaeologists in many different specialties – osteology, zooarcheology, archeobotany lithics, etc. Consequently, we are going to do a big career tie-in with the fourth grade Egypt unit this year!)

    Thanks so much! Love your blog and all your great ideas. I really must make myself a turf dress one of these days!


    • Hannah Holt

      Thanks for more great suggestion, Rebecca! There would be so many wonderful options in archaeology. And you never know when the dress code might be turf. 😉

  3. Susanna Leonard Hill

    I LOVE these, Hannah! So creative, and such a wonderful idea. I wish I had a little girl to spoil with them :) My granddaughter is only 15 months – I don’t think she’s quite ready :)

    • Hannah Holt

      Yes, probably not for a 15 month old. Give her a few more years and she’ll be at just the right age for this kind of thing. :)

  4. Rebecca

    Couldn’t wait to share! Here’s the School Counseling by Heart post:


    • Hannah Holt

      Loved your post, Rebecca.

  5. Catherine

    Very clever and I love all the details like a worksheet, kids will cherish these.

    • Hannah Holt

      Thanks, Catherine.

  6. Joanna

    Super creative idea, Hannah. Definitely add some boys…

    I’d like to see a park ranger.

    • Hannah Holt

      Oooh, I like park ranger.

  7. Momsicle

    SO awesome!!! I’m left wishing I could think of some more great career suggestions, like others have. In the meantime, I’m just so proud that you’re making these!

  8. Liz Galvin

    Hannah, these new ones are great, too!! Thanks so much; I love them!

  9. Angie Klink

    Fantastic paper dolls! Love this idea! Suggestions: writer/author and engineer. All kinds of engineer possibilities: electrical, mechanical, chemical, Industrial, etc. thanks!

  10. deli

    I would like to see a nurse or dental assistant

  11. Deena

    A paleontologist would be perfect!
