    You can use the heavy paper as covers for journals or other student work. You can have students cut out shapes or designs to use in collages. Because the paper often has a pattern you can have your students pick a paper and tape or glue a piece of it to a piece of plain paper. Then have them continue the pattern using their crayons or markers. The students can cut triangles, squares, etc. out of the wallpaper and use them to quiz each other about shapes (for younger students). Or they can cut out the shapes and then cut the shapes into fractional parts like halves, thirds, etc. They can practice showing 2/3 or 7/8 using their wallpaper shapes.

    What grade do you teach? That might help others give you more specific ideas.
