For about 100 years, store owners served warm food like Fish ’n Chips in scraps of newspaper, which were inexpensive and easy to find. Now we know that it isn’t healthy to wrap food in real newspaper, but with a little creativity, we’ll help you craft a safe and modern version of this classic seaside delight.
How to Make a Newspaper Cone
- Fold the newspaper in half diagonally and cut a matching piece of parchment paper to lay on top.
- Take one of the corners on the longer side, begin to curl it inwards, and line it up with the short corner at the top of the triangle.
- Place a piece of double-sided or rolled tape on the outside of the cone and continue rolling over the tape. Use one last piece of tape to secure the outer edge of your Newspaper Cone.
- Serve your Bristish-Style Potato Chips or your Fish ’n Dip in your Newspaper Cones! You can download more Newspaper Cones to print at kidstir.com/newpapercone.
