Paper Sculptures

Play and make sculpture at the same time! Using strips of paper, kids are encouraged to fold, bend, twist and curl them into awesome architectural delights.⁠


  1. Cut a bunch of colored paper into strips with varying lengths and widths.⁠

  1. Begin by creating a shape with a strip and gluing it to a piece of cardboard or whole piece of construction paper as your base.

  1. Working from that first shape, begin building out and up with your sculpture. Try to do something different to each strip of paper: fold, bend, twist, curl, loop – what other ways can you manipulate it?
