Over the years, we’ve shared all kinds of fun crafts for tweens to make. Craft projects that have used supplies from clay and paint to Halloween candy wrappers. However, we haven’t shared a collection of paper crafts for tweens and we wanted to gather all kinds of creative paper crafts in one place.
We love a craft project that involves recycling and many of these paper crafts are perfect for using up old scraps of paper. Some will have kids painting their own paper and then using the paper to build other items. There are all kinds of creative ways to use paper in this collection of paper crafts for tweens.
