Paper chains are super easy and fun to make. Children of all ages love to make them so why not have a go at making some for Valentines Day this year?

You will need:

  • Stripes of paper
  • A pair of scissors – With adult supervision
  • A stapler

To make love heart shaped paper chains:

1. First thing you will need to do is create your strips of paper. Choose 2 different colours of A4 card, and cut strips of the same width out. We would recommend cutting across the paper landscape.

2. Depending on how long you would like your chain, make sure you have the appropriate amount of strips. Once you have your strips, you can now create your chain.

3. Grab your first colour strip and fold in half. To turn your strip into a heart, fold over the 2 flaps and staple together.
