Chinese Fan

You will need: a piece of paper, two wide popsicle sticks (or cardboard strips), PVA glue, sticky tape, colouring pens



Decorate your paper with the pens. Choose a pretty design like butterflies and flowers, or perhaps decorate with Chinese characters for something a little more dramatic.


Pleat the paper into folds about 1 1/2cm wide.


Glue a popsicle stick (or cardboard strip) onto each end of the paper. The popsicle sticks should stick out about 2cm above the top of the paper.


Tape the bottom of the fan together. To open your fan, bring the popsicle sticks all the way round so that they meet.
