Here Comes The Sun! Paper Globes
Summer isn’t officially here for another month, but with Memorial Day comes our end of school and the beginning of long, sunny days filled with picnics, vacations, swimming and entertaining. Here’s an easy paper decoration that the kids can make for your next cook-out, baby shower, or cocktail party. Vary the colors to suit any holiday.
These simple paper globes are made with strips of paper and brass fasteners. For younger kids, you can have all the strips ready to go and let the kids assemble them and older kids can do all of the cutting and punching as well. It’s a great way to keep the kids occupied while you make last-minute party preparations. You can even make these eco-friendly by using junk mail or cereal boxes.
- Card stock in various shades of yellow
- 1″ fasteners
- Scissors or paper cutter
- Hole punch
- Monofilament (fishing line) for hanging
Step #1: Cut strips from card stock in 1 1/2″ widths with varying lengths. Punch holes at both ends.
Step #2: Insert the fasteners at either end and bend the prongs back to secure them.
