This is a fantastic project to keep the kids occupied during the school holidays or over a rainy weekend. All you need is some old cardboard boxes, pens, scissors and some sticky tape.
First my 5yr old began by drawing out all the different components he wanted in his city which included roads, stop signs, zebra crossings, houses, sky scrapers, roundabouts and trees. I helped him to cut out all the pieces and helped to make cross sections so the buildings could stand up. The he began to set out his city and play!
