Make a Little Book for May Day


Here is a little May Day accordion book for you to print (one-sided printing on 1 piece of paper) and fold. This is the refrain of the Padstow May song which is traditionally sung on May Day in Padstow, Cornwall. You can hear The Revels sing it here.

1. Print the pdf. If you want to color it, I think it is easiest to do that before you fold.

2. Fold the paper in half so it is long and skinny like a hot dog and the writing and picture are on the outside.

3. Fold the folded piece in half so that the Maypole is on the outside.

4. Take one layer, flip the edge back to meet the fold, and crease.

5. Turn the paper over and do the same on the other side.

6. Your book is complete. Happy May!
