Disney Lifestyle : discovering papercrafts

We’re confined to the house for a little while… We might be deprived of our favourite Park but there’s nothing to stop us, with very little equipment, from bringing a little Disney magic to life at home!

Today let’s dive into the world of papercrafts. It’s a fun activity for young and old alike! But a papercraft or papertoy, what is it? A mixture of collage and origami, patience and thoroughness: enough to keep you busy for hours!! Here’s how it looks:

If in a month we are still in confinement, my daughter and I have decided to take up the challenge!

In the meantime, my 9 year old daughter started her first cuts this week, with simple patterns to start with. At a rate of about 30 minutes per papercraft, it’s been a busy few hours already!

Great lover of the Disney universe, I live my passion throughout the year since I work listening to ED92radio and I go to Disneyland Paris several times a year. I also had the chance to visit American Disney parks and to go on vacation with Mickey several times on board the Disney Cruise Line boats. So it was only natural that I wanted to join the ED92 team as a blog editor in February 2020, to share with you my experience and my passion for this magical universe.
