The colored construction paper has come a long way since my elementary school days.
I can remember the choices of colors were few - and the paper always looked "faded" to me - the projects that we made with them actually did fade as they were displayed around the class room.
But the kids today have some really good choices when it comes to creating their class projects.
They get to use AstroBrights papers that come in 23 different colors.
They do not know how lucky they are - they can stretch their creativity and beyond with these bright colorful papers.
If I remember correctly we were limited to a whole four colors - red, green, yellow, and blue.
And you had to be really quick to snag a blue or yellow sheet - most of the pack contained the red and green sheets.
These Astrobrights papers are great for catching attention and they aren't for just the classroom either.
Flyers and presentations will really stand out and give your ideas a second look.
Around the house, office, and school, projects done with these papers will show off your creativity to it's best.
And they are holding a sweepstakes that can win a great prize for your local elementary school.
The Give a Brighter Year Sweepstakes will award the winning school a $30,000 prize of cash and school supplies.
Check out the above link for all the details.
They also have design challenges that anyone can participate in.
The Make Something Astrobright design challenge is a family-friendly competition that will award astrobright papers and other prizes.
You can share your creations with photos and videos on Facebook, Pinterest, and Twitter - and be sure to use the hashtag #goastrobrights to connect with the other contestants.
