11 Easy Paper Crafts For Kids That You’ll Love


A few days ago both my 5 year old and seven year old created some fun and cute doughnut paper crafts for that involved cutting, designing, and decorating. So I thought I would share!

This activity is create for multiple ages too. The younger they are, the more you will need to provide support with the cutting, but the decorating is fair game.

The set up for this was easy but did take some prep time. It took a few minutes to get all of the cereal boxes cut, so that may be something you want to do ahead of time.
