As kids, anything related to playing and fun activities interest you, whether it is outdoor games or indoor. However, during the current pandemic, it is difficult for parents to let their kids go out and play. Therefore, all they want is some activities or games that make kids spend quality time at home and which is where www.papertoys.com — a simple yet crafty website — provides kids and adults with a huge collection of directions and printables for creating paper toys.

As I said earlier, the website is very simple and you can see long lists of toy titles on the homepage. There are approximately 100 unique models; the types of these models vary from monuments (such as the Chrysler Building or the Eiffel Tower) to holiday creations. You can see printable instructions to fold, cut and glue free, beautifully decorated paper for each model. Some projects include a foldable pattern while others start from scratch with paper. Some of the toys are very simple to make while others a bit challenging.

However, the website misses the interactivity for kids; there is no option to share or show pictures of their creations to the site. Most of the paper craft models are in PDF printable form which can easily be downloaded. While some models include image form, such as jpg. or png format.

So kids, don’t lay down and waste time, let’s be creative; choose a design, print it out, cut out the model, and start folding it. Make toys from papers as the site has lots of amazing stuff for you! https://www.papertoys.com/
