Lottie is celebrating World Cup 2014 with the release of free printable activities for kids.
Parents can download and print out a set of themed paper Lottie doll illustrations that let kids dress Lottie in football kits inspired by the 32 teams taking part in the World Cup 2014. The activity set also includes practical football coaching tips from USA soccer coach and author Andrea Montalbano. The football themed paper dolls help encourage girls’ interest in football in a positive, fun and accessible way and promote a healthy body shape, and the practical football coaching tips provided by USA soccer coach and author Andrea Montalbano encourage girls to get out there and be active and sporty – just like Lottie.
Andrea Montalbano said: “Getting girls into football is as easy as stepping outside with a ball. It’s a fantastic way to get little bodies moving, brilliant family time, and most of all a lot of fun. Football is for everyone.”
Lucie Follett, creative director of Arklu, explained: “Developing football skills is not only a great way to get fit and healthy, but it also helps girls build confidence to reach their potential.”
The activity set has received support from the sporting community.
The football-themed printables are available for download here.
