PROJECT: WW1 PAPER TOYS
FIRST WORLD WAR: THEN AND NOW/HERITAGE LOTTERY FUND
DIGITISATION OF PAPER TOYS
Cabinet of Curiosity are completing the final stage of a World War 1 project that involved researching and reproducing paper toy models produced between 1914-1918 to engage children and families in learning about history through making.
The paper toys will be available as a free educational resource on the Cabinet of Curiosity website to enable a wider community to make these toys.
This project is supported by the National Lottery through the Heritage Lottery Fund special grant programme ‘First World War – Then and Now’.
