Set Up Your Finish Line!
Create fun decorations with your mini-mini runner by assembling a mini-mini-themed paper chain! You can use this paper chain design as course decoration or hold it up for your runner as they break through the finish line! Here's how you can put your paper chain together:

  1. Download, print, and decorate the paper chain sheets - as many as you'd like!
  2. Cut the strips of paper along the border.
  3. Take your first strip and paste the ends together it forms a circle.
  4. Loop the second strip through the first and paste the ends together, creating a chain. Keep this up until you have a chain and keep adding more loops for an extended length.
  5. Get creative on how you use the chain, share your photos with us by tagging #indyminimini!
