There are so, so many options for construction paper on the market.

My pick is this inexpensive set of Crayola construction paper.

It boasts 240 sheets in 12 vibrant colors (Red, Pink, Yellow, Orange, Green, Blue, Light Blue, Light Green, Purple, Brown, White, and Black).

It’s thin, but doesn’t tear as easily as cheaper paper tends to.

Difference Between Cardstock and Construction Paper

Cardstock and construction paper are two very different products used for different applications.

Cardstock is, overall, sturdier than construction paper.

It retains it’s color over time better than construction paper, too (though, of course, it will eventually fade if exposed to light).

In short, if I’m doing a project requiring lots of folding and manipulation of the paper, my choice is construction paper.

If I’d doing a project where I want a stiffer, sturdier end result, I’ll turn to cardstock.
