Children will love playing with this easy hand-made paper toy from the 1890s.
- Tissue paper in bright colors
Cut some colored paper into pieces about 4-in wide by 8-in long. (You can also stack several sheets together and cut them).
Then at one end of each piece cut it into strips about one-third of the length of the paper.
Pinch the uncut end of the paper together, and twist it tightly so that it will not come undone.
