Totally Awesome Paper Sculpture Kit

I just can't bring myself to buy regular birthday gifts: toys with little pieces, plastic, the stuff your kid asks for from the Saturday morning cartoon commercials.  Its the kind of stuff i find myself wanting to throw away when I find it on the floor around the house.
Anyway, I have a lot of fun creating unique birthday gifts.  It is something that Hannah and I have been able to work on together.

This is one of my very favorite creations:  The Totally Awesome Paper Sculpture Kit!!!
We used those Saturday morning commercials as inspiration for our box design: i.e. "Trick-Trick-Trick your your Bike!!!"

Paper Sculpture is a great activity for children.  It gives them the opportunity to problem solve and think about 3-d forms by using staples and tape (which the the kids "totally" love).

This kit contained rainbow colored card stock, tape, scissors, a stapler and staples, and some fun little extras like pipe cleaners and puff balls.
