Here's an easy craft for the middle of the week: a Peruvian paper doll. You can find the template on this education.com site, where there's also paper dolls for many other countries.
Some of the "traditional" costumes are a little cheesy, but The Whirl Girl enjoyed coloring and then playing with them. And it was a craft she could mostly do on her own (minus the cutting). Plus she comes with her own (paper) cup of ceviche! Yum!
