  1. Cut out a square of construction paper about 8" x 8"
    My kids chose their favorite colors for this project. Use whatever color(s) they like!
  2. Fold square in half diagonally so it looks like a triangle.
  3. Fold accordian style, like a fan.
  4. Glue to inside of toilet tissue tube. Let dry.
    One of my kids glued it with the point up, the other with the point down. Do it however you like!

Why We Love Crafts for Kids:
Art develops creative thinking, provides means of communication and self expression, increases self understanding, strengthens self concepts and confidence, serves as an emotional release, provides decision-making opportunities, develops appreciation for the individuality of others, aids physical coordination, develops work habits and a sense of responsibility, heightens aesthetic awareness and sensitivity, and generates joy!  

For Children with Special Needs: 
Assist your child as much as needed - but allow it to be his project.  Art projects are great for fine motor exercise, and using creativity. If your child has a limited attention span, have all supplies ready before having him begin the project.This opportunity for hands-on learning with no wrong choices is ideal to foster self esteem as well.
