Go and get a piece of paper in the color that you want for your whistle. Now fold it into 4 equal parts the long way, as you can see in figure 1. Now go and get your scissor. Cut a diamond hole in the center fold, pictured in figure 2. . Now place this front fold upon your mouth and blow into it. You will immediately hear an amazing train whistle. No, there isn't a train in your house, that was you making that noise.
This is a paper cut-out and folding diagram to make a printable paper squirrel. Choose which one you want to print... black squirrel, a white squirrel to color in yourself, or a tan squirrel.

Make this Standable Paper Parrot Craft by printing out the black and white diagram or the color diagram. This parrot won't fly or talk back to you, but it turns out really well and would be a great addition to your collection of paper models.
You can make a spinning paper top by printing out this diagram twice (black and white or color model) ... then cut out both of the hexagons that you printed out. Each will have a triangle missing...this is what you are supposed to do. On each paper hexagon, tape the 2 sides together to make 5 sided pyramid. After you have 2 paper 5-sided pyramids, place them base to base and then tape them together with Scotch tape (clear kind). Then poke a hole in both of the tops of the pyramids. Then push a wooden safety match, half of a chopstick, or a pencil. Then have fun and spin away.
Start off by first cutting out a circle for the bottom of the tent .... for example 4 inch radius (the measurement from the center of the circle to the outside of the circle). For the part of the tent that is shaped like a cone, you will want to draw another circle. We will want to cut out a circle that has a 4 inch radius. This entire circle will not be used...so to find out how much of the larger circle will be used, you will need to do the following trick. Take the 2 inch radius circle and make a mark on it. Then roll this circle around the 4 inch radius circle, starting with the mark. Then turn it until the mark shows up again...you know that you have made one full turn then. Make a few rectangle tabs sticking out of the outside of the circle. A stick can be used for the center of the tent. Then glue them to the base of the tent (smaller circle). Make a little toothpick flat and attach it to the top of the tent.
Read the instructions above to make yoiur very own paper umbrellas. You would think that it is really hard to do, but really it isn't. First trace a circle on a piece of colorful paper. Cut out the circle. Leave a tiny triangle cut out of the circle....as if there was a very tiny piece of pizza cut out of the circle. Now fold over the triangle into a triangle fold. Now fold it back behind the circle...the forward...then back...like an accordion fold until it looks like picture #5 above. Now open up the shape to look like picture #6 and glue the 2 sides together. Now let completely dry and then put a toothpick through the center of the paper to make a beautiful paper umbrella.
