The theme for the Unplugged Project for this week is newspaper. I remembered seeing a structure made out of newspaper and saved the instructions for “some day”. Well today was that some day.
I just so happened to have this past weeks newspapers and the paper leftover from the garage sale. Good thing because this project uses ALOT of newspapers. Also, you will need tape, a pencil, stapler, a sheet is optional.
First lay 4 sheets of newspaper on top of each other. Place the pencil in the corner and roll the 4 sheets diagonally to make a tube.
Tape the middle and let pencil slide out of tube. Repeat 25 times. The 25 tubes should be close to the same length-trim if you need to.
Use 3 tubes to make a triangle and staple at each corner. Repeat until you have 5 triangles.
Connect the triangles in a long line, staple together.
Get help! Stand the triangles up and staple the two ends together. Add a tube to the last top spot.
Use the 5 remaining tubes to make a star stapled in the middle.
A sheet or other light weight material can cover your hut if you want. Get inside and play!!!!
