Making robots is always a winner in our house, these cardboard collage robots are super fun and easy to make. If you attach the arms and lets using paper fasteners you could even make them into puppets.

The first job is to get messy and paint all the cardboard. Once the paint is dried, we cut out lots of different shapes; think body shapes then lots of other shapes that could be arms, legs and heads. We also drew lots of eyes and control panels onto white paper which I help cut out.
Then get happy with the glue and build your robots!
We did this activity with friends at a play date at our house, everyone loved it, even the adults!
