CARDBOARD BOX TOWN
We had been planning this project for a while. My boy had spotted some big cardboard box city creations on Pinterest and wanted to make one. So we started saving boxes!
MATERIALS: Different size cardboard boxes, markers, craft knife, paddle pop sticks, match sticks and PVA glue.
TUTORIAL: The first job I did was to take all the boxes apart and turn then inside out so there was black cardboard on the outside. This isn't 100% necessary but it just makes the boxes a little nicer to draw on and decorate. Then my boy began drawing all the doors and windows onto each house.
I then cut out doors and windows for him with a sharp craft knife. The boy then began to assemble the town. Initially we planned to stick all the boxes together but we soon realised it would be much more fun if you could knock the town down and rebuild it in a different way.
We then made lots of ladders, sign posts and TV antenna for the town using paddle pop sticks, match sticks and cardboard.
Then assemble your town!
