Set Up Your Finish Line!

Create fun decorations by assembling an #Indyminimini themed paper chain! You can use this paper chain design as course decoration or a finish line to break through as you cross the finish line! Here's how you can put your paper chain together:
  1. Download the paper chain sheets found below.
  2. Print out either the colored or black and white version of the paper chain link. If you want to color your chains in, color the strips of paper before pasting them.
  3. Cut the strips of paper along the border.
  4. Take your first strip and paste the ends together so that you have a circle.
  5. Loop the second strip through the first and paste the ends together. Keep this up until you have a chain. The length of the chain will depend upon how many strips you have looped together!
  6. Get creative on how you use the chain, share your photos with us by tagging #Indyminimini!
