Doll Balance Beam

Paula from Sweet Pea fulfilled a little girl’s Christmas wish by making a balance beam for her American Girl McKenna doll. The balance beam was on back order until March so Paula and her husband really came to the rescue. Their little friend tells everyone that her balance beam was crafted by “real live elves.” Too cute!


The original inspiration came from the McKenna’s Beam and Bar from American Girl.

Make your own balance beam following Paula’s steps at Sweet Pea.


  1. Thanks so much for featuring my knock-off balance beam. Our little friend loves it!

    • My daughter would go crazy over that, Paula! Maybe you can sweet talk hubs into making another… 😉
