In Holland children go to highschool at the age of 12. Our elementary school is for children aged 4 - 12 years old. At the end of the 8th group, children of our school get their own portfolio with drawings they made that last year. The portfolio's are bought by the school. Of course, the dull gray folders must become personal portfolio's. In the context of the coming up farewell of elementary school, we have therefore made a sort of remembrance medal. Take a white drawing sheet, a straw and coloured ink. , een rietje en enkele kleurtjes lichte ecoline. Drop some ink on the sheet and blow it with a straw. Repeat with other colours and leave it to dry.

Put the sheet on a newspaper. Determine the middle of the sheet and put a compass in it. Draw concentrich circles with the compass with one centimeter space between them. Make a sprial of these circles, using a pencil and an eraser. Erase a little part of circle 1 and draw a connecting line towards circle 2. Do the same with the other circles and finish the spiral.

Write with a permanent black fine marker words in the spiral that make you think of the elementary school period. Think of courses, activities, teachers, classmates, fun and less good things. Write until the spiral is full.

Detail spiral

Cut the spiral. Draw a circle on coloured paper that is 2 cm larger than the spiral and cut it out too. Use scissors to prick a little hole in the spiral, the coloured circle and the portfolio map. Fasten the two circles with a split pin onto the map. Decorate the folder with pieces of paper or little drawings, and don't forget to write or paste your name on it with big letters! You may use the rest of the ink sheet for the letters.
