I needed a really quick and easy craft, with absolutely no mess and one that would take a fair amount of time for certain folk!!! And this is what we came up with:
I live with the paper chain queen, who has been making Milly Molly Mandy Paper dolls for about her whole life!!!
Now the thing about paper chains is you are not limited in any way to just paper dolls… anything will do…
So let’s Play the Game:
Step 1: We used the brightest craft paper we could find, we folded it into four and then cut it into strips.
Step 2: We stuck the four strips together and had one long strip of paper. Naturally you can make these as long or as small as you like.
Step 3: We folded the paper into small rectangles…
Step 4: Draw your picture, making sure that you have pieces of your picture right up to the folded edges.
Some of us took a while to decide what to draw!
Step 5: Snip away and make sure to not to snip along any of the folds.
Step 6: Carefully unfold your paperchain…
Step 7: Decorate…
and you are done… we had ailiens, dogs, robots, sharks, elephants, girls and lizards.
