Printable Graph Paper

Today is my husband’s birthday and my kids made really nice cards for him. My daughter also made him a small book of word searches and one of crossword puzzles which I thought was so cool. This morning she was inspired to make more puzzles and my husband suggested she use graph paper. He asked me if we have any and I said no but that some would soon be available as a printable from Doodles and Jots!
