Paper Craft Fun with Handprints, Garland and Kawaii Art

Crafting with paper is an inexpensive way to let creative hands and minds flourish. And it's a craft supply that almost always all of us tend to have on hand, as it doesn't take a lot of room to store. What kind of papers do your children love to craft with?
