Paper Carousel Roof
To create carousel roof, cut out 7-1/2-inch circle from 8-1/2x11-inch sheet of construction paper. Cut one slit from outer edge of circle to center; tape cut edges together to form carousel roof. For a two-color carousel, cut a second 7-1/2-inch circle from construction paper in another color and fold into 8 wedges. Carefully cut out 4 wedges; glue them onto first circle of paper so colors alternate (before cuting the slit and taping the edges).
