Kids Craft Ideas: Paper Tops

You will need the following materials:

  • Toothpicks
  • Thin strips of paper (quilling paper works well since it's already cut into long, thin strips)
  • Glue
  • Paint pens (optional)

Paint toothpicks with paint pens if you like; let dry.

Glue one end of a 24-inch-long strip of paper just above the toothpick's tip. Roll tightly, and secure the end with glue. 

Glue on another strip and continue rolling; repeat about six times to make a disc 1 1/4 inches across.

To decorate, glue on thinner strips in other colors. Press the coiled paper between thumb and fingers to shape the top.
