The great thing about this project is that it takes minimal resources - just paper and glue! The not-so-desirable part (for me at least), was cutting out 1/4 inch strips of different colored paper for at least 2 classes. Talk about tedious - but totally worth it.
The activity was pretty straight forward, which gave students the majority of the time to actually work on their quilling. I asked them to make the outline of their objects first so that it would keep their wound up quills together and not unravel all over the place. The kids really enjoyed this new way to use paper to create art and really allowed me to walk around and sit at tables and have conversations with students. It is all about relationships and that is something I felt I needed to revisit and build upon a bit more.
