Fruit Paper Fan Craft for Kids


Supplies Needed:

Red cardstock paper- Two A4 size sheets.

Dark green and light green colors- One A4 size each.

Popsicle sticks 7- inches long- Two.* You may need four if you are using a shorter one and you glue two together to get a long one).

A small piece of yarn or embroidery floss in a matching color to tie the fan along the center.

Black coloring pen.


Glue stick.


Gather your supplies.


**You will be making the fan by joining two papers, folded in accordion style.


Cut two 8 x 8-inch pieces from the red cardstock paper.


Cut four strips, 8- inches long and 0.5- inches wide from the dark green and light green cardstock paper.


Glue the dark green strip along the top edge of the red piece.


Glue the light green strip just next to it.


Repeat on the opposite edge.


Draw the seeds spread along both edges with your coloring pen. Leave the middle part free.


Repeat on the other red piece, with the remaining green paper strips and the coloring pen.


Next, we need to fold the fan, accordion style.


Start folding the paper in accordion style from the edge that has no paper strip glued.


Keep folding till the whole paper is done.


Repeat on the other piece.


Glue the two pieces together along the long edges.


Take a piece of matching yarn, and wrap it around the center of the fan quite tightly. Cut off the ends of the yarn.


Apply glue along the edge and glue them together to complete the shape of the fan.


My glue stick was just 4 inches long. So I glued a part of another one to make it 7- inches long.


Take your popsicle stick and glue it along the free edge, starting from the center.


Repeat on the other free edge.


Your watermelon paper fan is ready!
