Paper Chain for Indian Independence Day

We made these patriotic paper chains for Indian Independence Day. They are very simple to make.

Supplies for Paper Chain:

  • paper – we used  Orange(Saffron), White and Green construction paper
  • scissors or paper slicer
  • glue or tape or stapler
  • blue marker
Cut strips approximately 2" x 8 ½" from the construction paper using a ruler and zacto blade. My ruler is about 2" wide so I use that as my guide.

Once you have cut the strips, draw little circles on the center of the white stripes with blue marker.

And draw lines as shown inside it which forms the 24 spokes of the Ashoka Chakra
Crafts for Indian Independence Day
Take one strip and over lap the ends to form a loop and staple in place. My girl recently has learnt to sucessfully use the stapler and thus chose it, but you could glue or tape the loop. Slide the next piece of paper through the first and secure.

Continue till all strips are used - make sure to follow the colors of India Flag - Saffron, White and Green.
