What I did on my summer vacation.

School is still out. Having the buses off the roads may be nice, but if you have school-aged people in your house, you may be anxiously counting the days until school starts again. As I remember, the short ones are fairly easily managed. It's the older ones who sleep most of the day (waking only to watch Golden Girls, destroy your kitchen making grilled cheese sandwiches, and then IM each other until the threat of dawn) who pose the real challenge.

If you live with these people (and don't have a cool trip to Chicago to escape to) I am gifting you with these links to some cool paper toys you can make while avoiding them.

Find lots of downloadable toys that spin, dip, whirl and pop at Flying Pig.

At John Watson's Flicker Toys you can make a cool ID badge, or turn your flickr pics into a movie poster, magazine cover, or billboard.

Explore the Art and Craft of Toy Design at Parson's New School of Design and download Brietta's Paper Penguin Toy.

Practice your graffiti on a blank paper train at papercraft world.

And the toymaker. Still my favorite.
