A page in this book is so much more than just a piece of paper… it can become just about anything you can dream of!
Paper Play is packed full of fun craft projects, using only the pages in the book – it’s designed to be ripped and snipped by you! Step-by-step instructions are easy for you to follow, making each project super simple to create.
All you need to complete the projects and activities are scissors, glue or tape, some bright colours, and your imagination. With this book, a piece of paper can be made into:
  • A sculpture
  • A flower
  • A crown
  • A set of flags
  • A lantern
  • An airplane
  • A puppet
  • A windmill
  • A fortune teller
  • A snowflake 

And, once you’ve completed all of the projects, there’s even a trophy to cut out and create at the end!
Using just the paper in the book, the innovative and quirky ideas combined with Lydia Crook’s fun artwork make for hours of creative play.
