Paper Chains

Paper ChainsGum wrapper paper chains have been around for a long time, but the original size is rather tedious for small hands. I found that scrapbook paper cut into larger strips works for many ages. This has been one of the most popular activities that I’ve ever tried with students from grade two to five.

1. Cut LOTS of strips of paper that are 1″ x 10″ in length. To make each link, the students must fold each strip in half, wrong sides together, and make a crease. The strip is opened, and each side in folded in half again. Lastly, both sides fold together, much like a book is folded. Press all edges to crease and make flat. The final should look like “bunny ears”, or two loops. Repeat for all links.
2. Follow the diagram to link chain together. Short chains make nice bookmarks, and long chains are fun to decorate with.

It has been so wonderfully open-handed of people like you to present freely what a number of us could have advertised for an e book to make some bucks on their own, precisely given that you might well have tried it if you considered necessary. Those tactics likewise worked like a great way to be certain that other people have the same zeal just as my own to understand great deal more pertaining to this problem. I think there are numerous more pleasurable situations ahead for people who look into your blog post.
