If you’ve got crafty kids at home (or kids you are just dying to pull away from a screen – hello!), The Kids’ Book of Paper Love is going to be a huge hit. Written by Irene Smit & Astrid Van Der Hulst, this book just released on October 15 and is perfect for older kids, right around 7-14 years old.
Brimming from cover to cover with projects and other paper surprises, The Kids’ Book of Paper Love, from the bestselling editors of Flow magazine and books, is a bounty of a book that begs to be folded, cut up, collaged, doodled on, and shared.
The Kids’ Book of Paper Love
The Kids’ Book of Paper Love is from the bestselling editors of Flow magazine and books including A Book That Takes Its Time and 50 Ways to Draw Your Beautiful, Ordinary Life. Now Flow enters the children’s section for the first time.
I absolutely LOVE this book for a gift idea this holiday season. For those of us that live in ‘snow day’ zones, it’s the perfect boredom buster on when school is cancelled. I know I’m not the only parent looking for screen-free gifts for the kids. Here are a few of my favorite pages and activities:
There are plenty of pages in this book that are great for sharing with friends, like these bookmarks, and postcards with DIY envelopes.
How cute is this?! A little gardening raccoon.
There are a handful of pages with adorable stickers on them. This is all the rage with kids right now. My daughter has stickers on every surface, I think.
Here’s one of many really simple, but oh-so-cute paper crafts in the book. And there are so many more: Loop paper strips into a paper chain. Fold a paper house. Make photo booth props—a silly mustache, a crown—to pose with friends. Bind up a DIY storybook and use it to sketch out adventures and dreams. Construct a paper flower bouquet, a paper terrarium, a fortune-teller with prompts like Lend someone a book and tell them why you recommend it.
