Some things just never change...

Happy New Year!!!
... and as this new year begins, many old habits continue. Some of you are aware of G's compulsion to cut-up/rip paper... this is what I found this morning, mixed in with other assorted pieces of who-knows-what! Do you think the bank will exchange it for entire dollar bills?
The most irreplaceable thing he ever cut-up was my high school diploma; the funniest episode was his unrolling an entire roll of toilet tissue to get the the center cardboard - the tissue was piled up on both sides of the john, about two feet high.
Sad, but funny...
Any suggestions on how to eliminate this behavior; or make it more functional? I labeled this post under "paper arts" because, well, I suppose this is his art form.

Oh Janice!!
How about leaving out papers you would recycle anyway? Dear, sweet G-I love the comment about this being his art form! Have you ever had him glue the ripped paper on poster board?
You are a patient mother!

Oh my goodness! At least it wasn't a higher bill! =)

With Emily, I usually have a drawer set aside for her with scraps that she can do whatever with. She likes to glue the scraps.
