Leading Ladies:

Women in Flight & The Space Age

I’d like to introduce my newest project! Leading Ladies is an ongoing project intended to  commemorate the plethora of amazing women of the past and present.

Every Leading Lady paper doll template is available in a PDF download to assemble at home. 

Imagine the possibilities that await! Print these over and over. Share them, and pass them around. Make them or gift them. You choose! Please make sure that you learn about these women and all that they have accomplished! NASA & SPACEX, Astronauts, Cosmonauts, Taikonauts, Spationauts, and Space Travelers all have one thing in common. Their goal is the advancement of the human race through scientific discoveries found in space.

Keep an eye on the site, as I will be adding batches of new designs! Don’t miss a chance to download an inspiring SHERO! Cheers to these Leading Ladies! May we be them! May we raise them! May we aim for the stars with them!

I loved playing with paper dolls as a kid. They travel easily and provide a fun craft with an engaging activity allowing imaginative play to fill hours of time with adventures! My hope is that these incredible women will inspire generations of future Leading Ladies. The sky is no longer the limit
