January: Make a Circle Fan


Make this craft from the Middle East. Children use these fans to keep cool on hot days.

What you need:
double-sided tape
markers or crayons
two drinking straws

What you do:
1. Cut a piece of paper 10 inches long and 5 inches wide. Use a ruler to help you.


2. Fold the paper like a fan. Fold it back and forth. Make even folds.







3. Fold the paper in half. Open it again. Put double-stick tape along half of one side.








4. Fold the paper in half again. Press the two sides together to that the tape sticks.









5. Tape straws to the outside of the fan. Put the top of each straw near the top of the fan. The bottom of the straws will stick down below the fan.







6. Use the straw handles to open your fan. It will form a circle.

Recently, one of my friends made the following Facebook post:

“I was in Walmart behind a lady as she struggled with her groceries. She had the cashier ring about half of the groceries up with a distinct priority. About halfway through, she had the cashier start adding items 1 or 2 at a time while she watched anxiously the total on the screen. Eventually she had the cashier stop and left about 6–8 items on the belt. Her young daughter of about 7 years (who was patiently waiting) asked about the small watermelon on the belt and wondered why they weren’t getting it. She didn’t ask about the Oreos, just the watermelon.
