Ancient Scroll

Follow the instructions to show your child how to make a mysterious ancient scroll.


  1. Two chopsticks
  2. Sheet of 8½" x 11" paper
  3. Scissors
  4. Tape
  5. Colored pens
  6. Yarn, cord, ribbon, or string


Trim the paper so that the chopsticks are two inches longer than the short side of the paper. Tape the chopsticks securely along each short side so that one inch protrudes at either end. Draw a picture and write a message on the paper. Roll up each side around the chopsticks until they meet in the middle. Tie a length of yarn around the scroll to keep it neat.
