Use Office Junk Paper for Home Coloring Paper

In my office, we get a lot of junk faxes and other used paper, old statements, cover sheets etc that are no longer needed. Instead of throwing these papers away I take them home for my kids to draw on. Of course there is no personal info on the paper.

I don't have to buy painting or coloring paper and it is a great way to recycle left over paper that otherwise would've gone in the trash. My son is a perfectionist and refuses to erase if he makes a mistake he starts all over again so this has saved so many trees :)

Most daycares could use extra paper also as long as it does not have anything personal on it. They do a lot of coloring and cutting. TK
