Paper Cuts

Think and Makes are starting point ideas to get little minds moving. Everything is adaptable and an invitation to resourcefulness and creative imagination. There are no strict instructions and there is no right or wrong – just ideas, materials and imagination – and hopefully new skills and patience learned along the way.

Lucy Grant’s Paper Cut animation features some of the many different traditions of this art form from around the world. If you would like to have a go at some of designs featured you can download and print a free PDF with instructions and templates to get you started here.

If you decide to try out some of these ideas we’d love to see the results. If you use social media please tag @thinkandmakeatCAST on instagram or facebook.
