Peakles and I wanted to make some ‘Chinese Fans’ as she had seen some in a book. In order to make this a quick and easy decoration activity I decided that we would use only card and stickers to make them. This is ideal if you have decided to quickly decorate your home to celebrate Chinese New Year.
A4 red card or thick paper. Some gold stickers (we used the ‘waste’ parts off an arts & crafts project I did a while ago) gold sticker stars and some red stickers. Sticky tape
What we did:
After putting the sheet landscape we stuck the gold stickers and red stickers to the half of the paper.
Then fold down the top about 1 cm (1 inch) press the paper to make sure that the fold has been made.
Repeat this action.
Secure the ‘handle’ by wrapping sticky tape around it. Flap it up and down holding the handle to see if the fan works!
Use red and gold wrapping paper instead of card etc.
Use glitter glue pens to create more swirling designs.
We enjoyed this quick activity and Peakles cannot wait to make more for her family!
