Nannie CanDo here with some great ideas on what the kids can do with Paper

Before the age of computers all we had were the my day kids...and I do mean basics. Paper, scissors, homemade glue, ribbons, buttons and crayons. No colored textas, no printed templates, no glue stick, hot melt glue gun etc.

A few years before I was born they had to learn how to make paper, make glue and paints.

Crayons and pencils and the very thing we take for granted now, Paper, were precious.

As you can see the list is quite lengthy and I do hope that you will indulge this old girl. We will work our way through Paper Crafts for Kids as quickly as possible.

When the page on the topic is built that section of the list will turn into a link. All that you have to do is click onto the link and you will be directed to that specific topic.

I do wish that I was SuperNan and could write pages at the speed of sound.

I have so much to share with you.
