PAPER RING ART
Art, Paper Sculpture

Express creativity and build motor skills.
What You Need:
- Construction paper
- White glue
What You Do:
- Cut a series of strips from the construction paper ½" wide. Cut these strips to about 4" long. (Adults might want to do this step for younger children).
- Encourage students to pinch the ends of rings to make either abstract shapes, or recognizable objects like flowers, leaves, etc. Leave the rings round for animal bodies, the sun, and other round objects. Students can adjust length of strips if desired, cutting them shorter for smaller things, and leaving them long (or gluing smaller pieces together) for larger items.
- Students then glue these pieces to a sheet of construction paper to create images and designs.
