Get Creative: Getting to Know You Paper Chains

Friday 3rd August 2018

Get to know your children better by creating these paper chains, made up of all their favourite things – ideal for the start of a new session.


1. Cut some coloured card into strips. Ensure these strips are big enough to write on and long enough to make into chains. (This could be done beforehand).

2. Ask the children to write onto different strips of card information about themselves. Some examples might be; name, age, family, pets, favourite food, favourite game, favourite film.

3. Once completed, each young person can start making up their paper chain. To do this just loop the card around to form a circle (with the writing on the outside). Fix the loop with either glue, staples or sellotape. Each loop after that, just needs to be fed through the last hoop you made, to make a chain.

4. Finish by letting each person tell the group what they have put on their paper chain.
