Let's get started!
Here is what you need:
|Cardboard piece |
(Place your hand on the cardboard and mark an outline. Cut out on the outline)
|1||Cut from a 10” x 5” cardboard piece||-|
|Another cardboard piece||1||10” x 2”||-|
|Single hole puncher||1||Standard||-|
|Cotton thread||1 spool||-||-|
|Paper cup||1||Any size||-|
STEP 1: Take one of the cardboard and mark it into two halves.
STEP 2: You can either draw a hand or sketch your own!
STEP 3: Use a marker and make it look prominent.
STEP 4: Cut the piece of the hand-drawn. Be very careful with the use of scissors!
STEP 5: Place the scale 1 inch down the first finger and bend it gently.
Do this for all the fingers.
STEP 6: Another bend. Another inch below.
Till it looks like...
A human hand. Try and compare it with your own hand to see if it is perfect.
STEP 7: Take markings on the straw.
8 pieces of length 1/2 inch each. Takes a while!
STEP 8: You can either use tape or glue gun (under an elder's guidance) to stick the straw to the fingers.
STEP 9: Count 8!
STEP 10: Take the other cardboard and cut a small strip (2 inches approx.) according to the size of your hand.
This is how you need to bend it.
STEP 11: Tape/glue it to the cardboard. This will act as your hand support. You can check the size by carefully letting your hand in it.
STEP 12: Pass the thread through straws of one finger.
STEP 13: Cut and tie a thumb pin at one of the ends.
STEP 14: Insert your hand in through the hand support and tie a loop around your pinky finger. Then remove your hand.
STEP 15: Do this for all the fingers and make loops at the user's end.
