Chinese crafts: fan

We did made just about the simplest fan that you can make because, well, we were in that kind of mood.  You can find ideas for more elaborate (but not that elaborate) fans on Activity Village.  Afterwards, we watched this YouTube video to inspire some fan dance moves.


  • paper (we used construction paper)
  • clear packing tape
  • wooden stick (we used a wooden chopstick, could also use a popsicle stick)

Step One: Decorate paper.  We used crayons to color. 

Step Two: Fold like an accordion.  Smaller folds are better.

Step Three: Tape the chopstick in the middle and tape the bottom of the fan together. 

So easy we made two!
