Paper crafts are ridiculously easy to make.

That’s why they’re my go-to diy crafts projects to make with my kids at home.

I know that most moms (me included) dread the idea of creating an art project with their kids because most of them are so hard to pull off.

The good news is that paper crafts are some of the easiest arts and crafts projects you’ll ever make.

In this post, I’ve gathered some of my favorite easy paper crafts for kids that I enjoy making with my kids.
