Ancient Scroll

Materials

  1. Two chopsticks
  2. Sheet of 8½" x 11" paper
  3. Scissors
  4. Tape
  5. Colored pens
  6. Yarn, cord, ribbon, or string

Directions

Trim the paper so that the chopsticks are two inches longer than the short side of the paper. Tape the chopsticks securely along each short side so that one inch protrudes at either end. Draw a picture and write a message on the paper. Roll up each side around the chopsticks until they meet in the middle. Tie a length of yarn around the scroll to keep it neat.
