I have a sure way of beating the heat on those super warm days [I say 'super warm' and not 'hot', because when it is truly hot the only thing for it is an air conditioned plaza, cinema or a dunk in the ocean.]. It is a do it yourself lady bird fan. This activity is great for the kids and for you. Simply follow this tutorial...
|1. Take two A4 pages: one red and one black.|
|2. Fold the black piece down 3 times.|
|3. Draw a circle onto the folded black piece,|
using a white pencil.
|4. Cut into the paper around the drawn circle.|
You will have multiple circles from one cutting.
|5. Gluedown the circles onto the red piece of paper.|
|6. Fold the red paper in a zig zag pattern, making the folded width roughly 15 mm.|
Do this for the entire piece of paper.
|7. Sticky tape shut one end of the folded red paper.|
Opened out the open side and...
Voila! You have yourself a paper crafted lady bird fan.
