Dads! Do you work at an office? Let it be known that if people are throwing away paper that is (A) unstapled, (B) un-inked on side, and (C) not confidential, that they should give it to you. Then take it home and let your kids write, do crafts and fold origami with it.

More than once I have come into my office to find a stack of paper a half foot tall waiting for me to take it home, because a printer went goofy and printed out 300 pages of paper with a little squiggle of print at the top of each page. I love those days.

Kids are more creative if they have more paper.
