One of the things we’re always looking to do with Mr F and Mr Bunches are crafts projects – cutting, glueing, coloring, folding, that kind of thing. We do it because Mr F and Mr Bunches are kids, first of all, and love those kinds of things, and also because with their autism, the crafts projects serve as therapy, helping them organize their thoughts and stay in touch and focus.
So we have a wealth of crayons, scissors, glue, cotton balls, popsicle sticks, and especially paper, but not just ANY OLD paper: We use AstroBrights papers.
AstroBright papers are perfect for little kids’ projects because they practically GLOW, they’re so bright. 23 different colors mean that whether you’re making a castle, a tree, a spaceship, or a spaceship attacking a castle atop a tree, you’ve got the colors you need: red for lasers, bright yellow for aliens, blue for trees. (Mr Bunches chose it, not me.)
What’s also important is that AstroBright paper isn’t just high quality or great looking; they’re helping out schools by letting you with their "Give a Brighter Year" sweepstakes to let you win prizes totaling $30,000 in cash and supplised for the school of your choice.
Between that and their other contest, they’ve got a lot going on – because you can also enter the "Make Something Astrobright" challenge, and use your creativity to make projects to share on Pinterest and Twitter (use the hashtag #goastrobrights), and see what you can come up with (and what others come up with.)
