The Torii (Shinto gate) is a familiar symbol of Japan. What does this gate mean and where is it found in Japan?
Research Japan's islands, spotlighting the country's culture, symbols, and traditions. Making your own Torii will help you remember what you are learning about Japanese people and culture.
With Crayola® Scissors, cut two slits opposite each other, about the length of your thumb, on each of two cardboard tubes.
Cut a piece of light cardboard as wide as these slits and as long as the cardboard tubes. Slide the cardboard through all four slits of the cardboard tubes to form an H shape or crossbar.
Flatten a third cardboard tube. Use Crayola School Glue to attach it to the tops of the two cardboard tubes, closest to the H crossbar, to form a roof.
Cut one smaller piece of cardboard as wide as the crossbar of your H. Glue it to the back of the crossbar and to the Torii roof.
Cover your work area with newspaper. Paint your Torii with Crayola Washable Kid's Paint and Crayola Paint Brushes. Dry.
When your Torii is dry, decorate it with another color of paint. Dry.
Add Crayola Glitter Glue accents.
