Craft paper chain people

Craft paper chain people

Paper chain people is a timeless craft activity that all kids love. Whether it's a chain of their friends or family, kids will love decorating each and every person in the chain.

What you need:

  • pencil
  • paper
  • scissors
  • crayons

Number of players:


Fold paper, accordion-fashion.

The number of folds in the paper determines the number of people in the chain.

On the top piece of the folded paper, draw a person whose hands extend to touch the folds of the paper on each side.

Carefully cut around the person, making sure not to cut where the hands meet the folds.

Open up the paper and your child will have a chain of several people holding hands.

Colour them in with crayons, make different expressions on each face, or create a themed group.

Kids enjoy creating a replica of their family, so make sure you have enough folds to include whoever your child would like in the family group.
