Throwing a party, wedding or event where children will be present? Print a collection of Scissorcraft's images, set up a table and provide paper, scissors, crayons and markers and the kids will never be bored. ScissorCrafts® contains thousands of educational, safe for the holidays, printable paper craft activities.
ScissorCraft child craft images may be used by parents, teachers, care givers and hobbyists for personal and non-profit embroidery, crochet, woodworking and art projects such as masks and kids costumes. Many of these child craft images are from my own personal collection of doodles and sketches I have made over the past 40 years of boring office board meetings, that I wanted to share so they could be put to good use instead of hiding in my boxes of stored papers and other stuff I've carted around all these years.
There is a lot more to Scissorcraft than meets the eye. Scissorcrafts® is a growing collection of free child craft web sites offering a wide variety of color book images available for virtually every major or minor calendar holiday. So, no matter what the season, winter, spring, summer or fall, you will find great child craft activities.
This personal project began around the year 2000 with the activation of "Paper Snowflakes" website. I have always loved artistic work whether through illustration of simple black and white sketches or acrylic and oil paints to making molds and sculptires with clays and paper mache.
Paper Snowflakes was such a popular web site I soon established Scissorcraft with the idea in mind that it would be a jumping off point for a wide variety of images. My grandchildren arrived around this time and I also wanted to provide images to both entertain and educate.
Projects include snowflake and valentine patterns and templates suitable for virtually any craft adventure. You'll enjoy a large collection of African tribal color book masks along with mardi Gras carnival, Kabuki Theater and laugh and Cry masks. Animals of every shape and size to print and color and tons of puzzles and patterns.
Variety of Topics
Virtually every graphic in the Scissorcraft family of web sites is illustrated by the author of Scissorcraft and available in simple, easy to understand, black and white format. I believe all children, regardless of age, skill level, or ability, should have access to creative outlets while they gain exposure to the basic principles of mathematics, history and culture. To this end I have researched many subjects and illustrated quite a few interesting topics to give visitors a wide range of images from which to choose.
In addition to the categorized list of crafts listed above, ScissorCrafts has many web sites that encompass several seasons or even all seasons.
For instance, while Paper Valentines site is primarily focused on February 14th, Valentine’s Day, most images can be used for Mother's and Father's Day or any event where a sweet sentiment is warranted such as a note to a grand parent or other dear relative. In addition, Paper Eggs web site is primarily focused on Easter but our Russian Fabregé eggs images can be used for educating children about Russian history.
Printable games, puzzles and mazes are fun any time of the year. Going on a trip with kids? Print off a stack of games and puzzles and bring along the pencils and crayons to keep the little munchkins entertained.
