To make your own meander book-

You will need:

A 4 size paper, thick coloured paper, scissors and glue


1. Fold the paper into half along the dotted line from left to right.



2. Unfold and bring both the edges of the paper to the center.



3. Now repeat the steps 1 and 2, this time by folding the paper from top to bottom. You should have 16 rectangles like these.



4. Cut along the red lines as shown in the picture. We have marked the rectangles of the first row as a, b, c, d. Fold each rectangle forward like a fan till you reach the end of the first row. So ‘a’ goes over ‘b’ and keep folding forward till you reach ‘e’. Now fold d’ behind ‘e’ and keep going forward.



5. Cut two rectangles 6 x 8 cms and stick on either sides of your meander book as covers.
