It isn’t Christmas in our house without paper chains. Today I made a paper chain with my 4 year old son, Sprout. Very simple to make with a few supplies. You don’t need to use coloured paper if you don’t have any. You could use white paper and get the children to draw on it.
1) A mixture of coloured paper
3) A stapler and staples, or sticky tape
How to make paper chains
Cut the paper up into strips about 2cm wide.
Using a stapler or sticky tape, make a loop out of one paper strip. Put the next strip through the hole and make a second loop.
Continue until you have a complete chain. Either when you run out of paper strips, or staples/tape. Or as I did when you run out of enthusiasm.
