Paper Craft

Here is a fun and easy craft for preschoolers and older children. Another great thing is that it does not take a lot of materials.

We used: 4 different colored sheets of construction paper (one of them black), ruler, scissors, glue and a stapler.
Draw a 1/4 inch border around each of the pieces of construction paper except the black one.


Now have the kids cut shapes (regular and irregular shapes) inside the border of the paper.
For younger kids, you may need to start the cut.

Now stack the pieces of paper on top of each other and staple at the corners.
