Awesome African Shields

Amazing and dynamically decorated African shields!

Craft Project Directions:

To make this craft project you will need colored construction paper, scissors, tape, glue, markers or crayons, and other decorating materials if you wish. 

Cut out a shield shape using the template provided, (or create a longer shape, or one of your own) from colored construction paper or a heavier weight paper.

 Next cut out a strip of paper about an inch wide and 4 or 5 inches long.

Decide which side of the shield is going to be the back and take this strip of paper, place it vertically in the center of the shield, slide the ends of the strip toward each other so the paper strip bends creating a handle shape, and then tape the two ends of strip down to the back of the shield, leaving you with a sturdy handle for your shield.

Flip your shield over and decorate it!

Enjoy Crafting!
