Two Ways to Make Paper People Chains

With the start of the school year, my son and I've been talking a lot friendships- what it takes to make and be a friend.  I guess all that talk about friendships must have seeped into my crafting too, because I found myself with the great urge to cut out some paper people chains.  Inspired by this wikiHow post I cut out and doodled some  kid paper chains.  Yup. Today's post is going old-school with 2 fun paper people chain designs.

Ok, before we start, I have to make two points- 
1)  This paper people chain activity would be really neat to do after reading Say Hello!  (It's one of our favorite books and shows a girl saying hello to different kids in her neighborhood.)

2)  As I look at these photos I realize that my people lack diversity.  Ack! Sorry about that.  I really should have added different skin colors to the kids to make them more representative.

Ok! Now, onto the craft-

Paper People Snowflake Chain


Yup.  I love this one because it's another neat snowflake design that I can add to the blog.

To cut out a snowflake like this one, simply grab a piece of computer paper, and cut and fold it like so to get it ready for some snowflake cutting.

Then, cut out a design like this to create your paper people snowflakes!

Cut a sheet of computer paper in half lengthwise.
Then, fold the paper in half once and then once again.
Then, unfold your paper a fold it accordion style along your previously folded lines.
Then, cut out a design like this to create an alternating paper people chain.
