We have been investigating the limitless possibilities of paper for decoration, sculpture, collage and problem solving, sometimes with a curious christmas twist.
We began the day by stretching our imaginations to see what we could do with just one piece of paper and our hands…nothing else…
Younger children started off making simple hanging paper decorations.
Each page must be methodically folded.
We used different techniques to create different effects
We then used a match box to create tiny worlds using pop up and collage techniques.
In teams of 4 we were given the challenge to build a structure that we could all fit inside.
We had limited materials and tokens ti ‘buy’ more materials…so we had to think hard about what we really needed.
We could make our structure attractive to look at.
