Paper herringbone

Crafts for the New Year in the kindergarten should be a snap - such that most of the work a child could do it yourself, and adults take in this process only a minimal part

You can make crafts out. paper, using various auxiliary materials - for example, cardboard cylinders from toilet paper. Taking one such cylinder as a base, using a green paper sheet, golden glitters and shiny markers, you can literally make an elegant Christmas tree-accordion in an hour.

What we need to do:

First, the cylinder is cut from two opposite sides with a sharp stationery knife; we bring the incision approximately to the middle of the cylinder height. Then the green sheet is folded with a small harmonica and bent in half.

 Making the paper accordion and adds

The edges of this fold are glued together to form a paper fan.We carefully insert this fan into the cuts that were made in the cylinder. The basis for our crafts for the New Year is ready - we have a wonderful Christmas tree in front of us.

At its top we glue a bright yellow star. You can decorate the top with a bow - at your discretion.

And we cover the surface of the Christmas tree with bright golden sparkles. They can be of different shapes and sizes; it will be easier to glue large sparkles than small ones, and if you work with small sparkles, you can simply cover the paper with a layer of transparent glue and sprinkle them on top.

It only remains to decorate the barrel - we draw wavy stripes on it with a golden shiny marker . You can decorate the trunk differently - for example, to glue it with gold foil (to match the sparkles). But you will need to do this before you cut the cylinder and insert a paper crown into it.
