Do you remember when you were in school and the only colored paper you had was construction paper? They were huge thick sheets of textured paper that you had to cut down to get normal sized sheets. Sometimes they were smaller, but they were typically about the size of your desk. Don't get me wrong, I loved construction paper, but it's nice to have normal sized 8 1/2 x 11 paper to print on when you need to.
AstroBrights paper is not construction paper, it's premium bright colored paper that you can actually put into your printer for school projects, book reports, after school chore list, PTA meetings, flyers for your lost dog/cat or you can cut to any shape and size you want for scrap booking. What I most love is that, ok you are going to laugh. Remember those things we used to make that were called fortune tellers? We'd fold them up and then stick our fingers in and open wide then lengthwise and we would spell the color name, then choose a number and open and close it for that number of times then read our fortune? Well, we had to use lined school paper and sometimes get in trouble for wasting paper. This paper is perfect for that. But I digress.
You can support your local school with the "Give a Brighter Year Sweepstakes" with a cash prize and school supplies valued at $30,000 for the school of your choice.

They also have a contest called "Make Something Astrobrights." Unleash your creativity for a chance to win Astrobrights paper and other prizes.

Astrobrights is available at Target, Amazon, Staples, Office Depot, Office Max and Walgreens. I looked it up on Amazon and found it for $20 for 500 sheets. I mean come on, that's a lot of paper for that tiny amount. You could buy 2 packages and keep one for yourself and give the other to your local elementary school. I'm sure they could use it.
Have lots of fun making those fortune tellers, I wonder if I can remember how to make one lol.
