Materials

  • Kai-lan Paddle Fan Printable
  • Heavy cardstock paper for printing
  • Scissors
  • Glue stick
  • Oversized craft stick
  • Optional: Cardboard (for longer life)
Tip: For a more durable fan, glue the printed design onto cardboard, then cut around the fan's shape.

Directions

  1. Step 1: Print and cut

    Print out two copies of the Ni Hao, Kai-lan Fan Printable. Cut out the shape along the dotted lines from both pages. (This is a great step for your child to do on his or her own.)

  2. Step 2: Glue the fan together

    Place one cut-out face down on a table and glue a craft stick to the back of it, making sure the stick extends beyond the paper. Then, glue the other cut-out to the first so both printed sides face out. <br/><br/> Optional: For longer life, cut out the same shape from a piece of cardboard and glue to the back of one of the cut-outs before gluing both sides together.

Tip: These fans make great birthday party favors. Hand them out with little cups of "tea."
