Summer Fun 2018 - Week 7


Summer Holidays have arrived and for children it is one of the best times of the year. National Parents Council Primary would like to help you and your family make the most of the holidays

DIY Pocket Fan

  • Decorate your paper first if using plain paper  or you can leave it plain if you prefer. You could also use coloured paper.
  • Score each paper on the 1/2″ mark. You can fold it without scoring, but scoring will help children get even folds all the way across (Photo 2 - 1st Picture)
  • Accordion fold each piece of paper. Then fold each paper in half (Photo 2 - 2nd Picture
  • Using a glue stick to adhere each fan piece together until you have one seam left (Photo 2 - 3rd Picture)
