A newspaper tree is basically rolled up sheets of taped together newspaper, cut in a certain way and a tree like form ‘magically’ (hey, I was a little kid) emerges from the roll of newspaper. I had forgotten all about this ‘magical’ tree until just a few days ago when a friend had reminded me of them.
If you have kids, or you’re just a kid at heart, you may want to give this a try, I can almost guarantee you that it’ll wow the kids (and maybe you too).
The basic instructions for making a newspaper tree are as follows:
(More detailed and visual instructions can be found in the YouTube video link below).
1. Tape together about 10 sheets of newspaper
2. Roll them up into a tube
3. Using scissors, cut 4 evenly spaced slits down the tube toward the center of the tube
4. Pull the leaves up from the center and watch your tree ‘MAGICALLY’ grow!
