Paperchains - activity for 7-11 year olds

Developed by Place2Be‘s Art Room team for 7-11 year olds, this activity helps children think about the people, things, and activities they feel connected to. 

I feel connected to people when I think of the sky. I'm reminded that we all share the same sky, even though the sky doesn't look the same everywhere. Chimaine, Art Room Developer

In this activity, children are encouraged to make paper chains to help them feel connected to the people and things they care about.

What you'll need

  • Plain or coloured paper
  • Something to colour with - pens, pencils, crayons or paint
  • Scissors
  • Glue or tape
  • Scrap paper (optional)
