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!

  • NASA Astronaut Christina Hammock Koch always wanted to be an Astronaut! She earned her Bachelors and Masters Degrees at NC State and went on to graduate from the NASA Academy Program at The Goddard Space Flight Center.

    Christina Koch's impressive experience leading up to her time at NASA both with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and with the United States Antarctic Program prepared Koch for her time in Space as she wintered-over f at the Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station, spent a season at the Palmer Station as well as Summit Station in Greenland where she was physically and mentally challenged for her endeavours into Space.

    Christina Koch made history twice in 2019 when she was a member of The First All-Female Space Walk along with NASA Astronaut Dr. Jessica Ulrika Meir. She again made history when she broke the record for the longest continuous time spent in Space by a female Astronaut.

    Keep an eye out for Astronaut Koch! She has been selected to be an Artemis Crew member and is expected to travel to the Moon in 2024. Follow along with Christina's adventures by downloading her file and learn all about her! Thank you for being an inspiration Astronaut Koch!
