Feeling Crafty this Spring?

By Jacalyn Modrzynski, Lead Educator

Who is feeling crafty this spring? Let’s have fun making a unique craft using construction paper in an unusual way! When we use paper we often use it as a flat canvas for the rest of our artwork, but paper can be more than just flat. Paper can be springy, curly, and it can even hold weight! What can you do with your paper?

For this craft you’ll need:

  • This template or draw your own
  • Construction paper
  • Scissors
  • Coloring supplies
  • Glue stick

For this craft you can:

  • Print out this template or draw your own
  • Color in the turtle
  • Cut out strips of construction paper
  • Fold each end of the construction paper
  • Glue ends of the construction paper to the edges of the circle

For extra fun:

  • See what weight your paper can hold
  • Fold up your paper accordion style
  • Roll up your paper on a pencil for a cute curly effect
