This is one of the most fun projects we have done recently. It didn't take long to make and the kids played with it for days! I loved watching their crazy imaginations being acted out as they put on different shows for us. Totally better viewing than Netflix!
A very large cardboard box or 2 boxes to join together
Hot glue gun
Marker pens or paints to decorate
Get your large cardboard box (I actually joined 2 boxes together to make a MEGA box, big enough for my 5 yr old to fit in), turn it inside out and glue down the top and bottom. This isn't 100% necessary but turning the box inside out gives you a nice clean cardboard exterior to decorate.
Cut your TV screen hole in the front of the box and a door in the side so the kids can get in and out. Decorate your TV adding buttons and antennae. We added some kids paintings as a backdrop for our TV.
The kids loved playing with this TV so much, it kept them and their friends entertained for days, that we decided to make a new version and include it in my first kids craft book UNBOXED: Adventures in cardboard.
