As a teacher I’m always trying to come up with creative ideas for seasonal crafts.
This year I came up with a fun collage idea for the Year of the Horse.
Here’s what you need:
- Chinese Newspaper (check out your local Chinatown, there is usually a free publication)
- Red construction paper
- Red yarn
- A print out of a horse (I found mine in the clip art images from Word)
- A print out of the chinese character “horse” (google it)
- Glue stick
- A hole punch
How to do the project:
1 – tear the newspaper in strips
2 – glue the pieces on the red paper (leaving a red strip at the top and bottom)
3 – cut out your horse shape and chinese character then glue them on top of the newspaper
4 – punch two holes at the top of your red paper
5 – attach the red piece of yarn
My students LOVED doing this project. Tearing the newspaper was their favourite part of the project. I love how our banners turned out!
