365 Things To Do With Paper and Cardboard {Review}

365 things to do with paper

Who doesn’t love a good book with inspirational ideas for collage pictures, models, crafts and more?  “365 Things To Do With Paper and Cardboard” is a wonderful book that encourages children to get creative and crafty, while reminding children to recycle paper from magazines and old wrapping paper to keep the fun activities eco-friendly.

I received a copy of the book and we absolutely love it. I am trying to do a few crafts a week with my toddler and I love that the book is jam-packed with fun projects and beautiful pictures and colours.  This is the perfect book of projects for the summer break.

Some of the actives that my son is excited to do include a set of cardboard dinosaurs, some cool foil bugs and the stand-up mini monsters. We did a couple of box monsters together and he had a lot of fun making funny faces for them.

I recommend you order the book if you have a toddler at home and you want activities that are easy and fun to do. I also recommend it as  a gift for teachers or caregivers of young children.

“365 Things To Do With Paper and Cardboard” is available online for $24.95 and at DeSerres stores nationally.

    This sounds like a fun book. I think that older children like my kids might enjoy it as well. I know my nieces and nephews would love it.
