Recycled Art Paper

This month's PSBN is an easy one. Give your kids used paper to draw on. My kids could happily go through an entire ream of paper in no time flat drawing, painting, folding, and cutting. Instead of crisp blank new paper and coloring books I give the kids junk mail, all those notices from school, old magazines, and any old paper I find laying around. A lot of these pieces of paper have only one printed side leaving a blank side to color and draw on. Even if both sides are used the paper can still be used for origami, and paper air planes. Some of the junk mail and magazines have bright colors that can be cut and glued to make a fun collage. Kid level recycling!
