Today at Crayons our Sunday Fun is simply staying cool! Paper fans are the go, not only are they are great sedentary activity at home or outdoors, but they serve a wonderful purpose on a hot day with out a breeze!
From the simplest paddle pop stick and paper plate, folded piece of decorated A4 paper or a more challenging piece of folded cardboard (we think pirates would have used rough-tough cardboard fans, tied with string if they had been available :-) through to delicately folded paper doily fans tied with ribbon, fans are the craft du jour this hot day!
For inspiration we have lots of paper fans designs to consider, but of course letting imaginations run wild while sitting still can be the best course on any Sunday, especially when the mercury is heading north. Older children may like to design model ceiling fans that operate by pulling a cord, and perhaps experimenting with the best fan shape for that purpose, with the fan spinning around or simply moving back and forth.
