Children will have lots of fun making these colourful paper plate fans. Help younger ones along by doing the gluing for them. If you like, use a glue gun for speed as long as you keep it out of reach of little fingers.
- 1 paper plate
- crayons, paints, or markers for colouring
- strong glue
- 4 lolly sticks
- Use scissors to cut the plate in half. One plate will make 2 fans.
- Draw a design.
- Colour it in with crayons, paints, or markers.
- I like mine just as it is, but you could let your imagination run wild with embellishments, ribbon, lace, buttons, collage, decoupage, and such like.
- Glue two sticks to the back of the fan and glue them together where they cross.
- A little bow where they cross and embellishments at the top of the sticks is nice.
- I dare you to be bold and use your beautiful fan in public. You could also use it as a decoration. It would look lovely in a bedroom.
