The papers are great to work with and stand up to little hands working with them. The colors make a beautiful project to hang in a window or on a wall.
Hard to find paper readily available here!

I have purchased this paper to make window stars with my high school geometry classes for nearly 10 years now. The colors are vibrant, the paper is tough, and the project is always a success! Thanks!

This kite paper is high quality and the colors are beautiful. So far we've used some to make Autumn window decorations.
