Activity: Paper Toys

Although this Summer has been strangely wet, I also like to have quiet inside activities for fine days too! Often we’re out and about in the morning so the kids need some quiet time in the afternoons … or, on really hot days, when it is far too hot to be outside playing, the kids need some inside activities!

I’ve just stumbled across some paper toys!!! We’re currently making a ship – will be back later with some pics of it!!

Paper toys just shout “awesome” to me!! Cheap (just the cost of printing from free downloads!), recyclable, imaginative… fun family time!

Here are a few free downloads for you to start your paper toy collection!!
