Great Website for Kids and Tinkerers

Marilyn Scott Waters has a great web site called "The Toymaker." At the web site she offers some free graphics for making paper toys. She also has an intricate world you can learn about through a story, a blog, a newsletter that will send you links to even more toys to print out. Some of her printouts are for games and even to help with math!

The fun with paper toys is that you print them out, cut them out, and assemble them into great objects for play and decoration. Her artwork is beautifully colored and has wonderful ornamentation. I had a lot of fun putting the toys together and my daughters had a lot of fun using them. I used her folded heart-shaped card for birthday invitations to my youngest daughter's princess party. They were beautiful.
