Activity: Newspaper Crafts

There are many ways to use old newspapers other than for packing or paper mache.

If you don’t have any newspapers around your house, you can find inexpensive ones at the dollar store, or for free at the entrance of some local grocery stores and restaurants.

Consider the following crafts for a fun afternoon or weekend activity:

  • Newspaper flowers: Cut newspaper into circles and other shapes. Paint them with watercolors and layer them together to make decorative flowers. You can even roll the paper into a rose-like shape to create a bouquet!
  • Newspaper flower pots: Shape the newspaper into a cup-like shape, add dirt, and when your seedlings grow enough to plant, you can plant the newspaper along with them! The newspaper will decompose underground and won’t do any harm to the plant.
  • Newspaper paintings: Cover a canvas or piece of cardboard with newspaper to add a unique backdrop to a painting. You can paint a person, animal, or landscape over the newspaper, letting some of the words peek through. This type of art makes the perfect addition to an office, home library, or kid’s bedroom!
