We always keep a generous supply of construction paper in our craft bag, in lots of colors. And these paper crafts for kids are exactly the reason. It’s amazing what you can do with just some paper, scissors, glue and a little bit of imagination. Of course, these paper craft ideas are a great place to start, but I’d love to see what crafts you come up with using construction paper too. Let your imagination run wild!

Easy Paper Crafts for Kids

All About the Craft Supplies

Like I said, we keep lots of construction paper in our kids’ craft bag. It’s one of the items on our master list of craft supplies that we use to make all of the hundreds of crafts on this site (and in our shop). It’s like having a capsule wardrobe…but for kids’ crafts instead of outfits. With just 27 basic items that fit into one bag, you’ll be amazed at all of the things you can make by just mixing and matching.

Specifically, we keep a variety pack of heavy weight construction paper, which includes both white, brown and black, as well as the primary colors, light blue, pink, and light green. Most variety packs don’t include gray. So, we also added a small pack of gray paper. You’d be surprised how often we use the gray for lots of different animal crafts.
