Construction paper has been a classroom favorite for paper crafts, bulletin board displays, party decorations, and as a drawing and coloring paper since it was invented. This paper's slightly rough, unfinished texture welcomes markers, colored pencils, crayons, and other dry media.
Blick carries white construction paper, black construction paper, and colored construction paper in primary colors, secondary colors, bright colors, neon colors, and even marbled and rainbow designs. Multicultural construction paper is great for helping kids create artwork that reflects the skin tones and cultures from our neighbors at home and around the world.
Features to look for when choosing construction paper include the ability to fold, cut, decorate, and build with it without the paper tearing or falling apart. Lightfastness is important, too, for crafts, artwork, displays, and decorations that you want to last. Eco-conscious students, teachers, and classrooms will be pleased to find construction paper made from recycled content, so children can learn about the environment and the importance of recycling.
