Paper Chains

By Saakshi Khanna; Illustrations by Shiju George

Diwali is that time of year when markets get flooded with decorations. You could buy them or perhaps try and make them on your own.

Paper Chains, Art & Craft Activities for Kids: 43_1.gif All you need is:

1. Crepe paper or Glossy paper.

2. Scissors.

3. Colours.

4. Adhesive.

Paper Chains, Art & Craft Activities for Kids: 43_2.gif Step 1: Take a sheet of paper, nine inches square. Fold it diagonally into two. You will get a triangle like the one in the illustration.

Step 2: With the help of scissors, make cuts as shown in the figure. Remember to keep two things in mind:

* The cuts should not reach from one side to the other.

* You should make cuts in alternate directions.

Step 4: Stick the two sheets together by dabbing some adhesive on the corners.

Step 5: Now, gently draw out the paper by pulling at the centre of both sides.

You will have a nice chain. Make a dozen of these and you can hang them all over.
