    My son and I found this site the other day by accident
    www.thetoymaker.com
    and have been having a blast with it. It is all stuff you print out on a regular printer and cut and fold into different things - he made his friend a birthday card, made a box that looks like a frog, he had a friend over and made little boats that he and his friend raced by blowing them along the floor, and something called a "skip counter" that helps you counting by 2's, 3's 4's etc etc

    so now he is addicted and had me try to find some other sites and I came up with some really cool ones...
    lots of neat stuff:

    origami

    and oh my gosh - look at the stuff on this one!

    we are not up to this level yet, to say the least :laughing:

    Best of all - they are all free!

    we are working on a rhino tonight, but I would love to see if anyone else is doing these and please share some pics!

    Thanks for posting this. As cold as it is going to be this weekend, this will help keep DS busy while we try to stay warm.

    these are awsome, thank you! We do all kinds of crafts. Today the girls were painting little round glass pebbles and then we put magnets on them and stuck them to the refrigerator :)
