Cardboard Creations for Kids: 50 Fun and Inventive Crafts Using Recycled Materials

We rated this book:


Do you like doing crafts with your kids? Are you looking for something creative to do besides watch TV or play on electronics? This book is the solution for you! Cardboard Creations for Kids is an amazing resource to help you find fun and simple ways to make hours of fun!

The book separates the crafts into sections with an introduction, large crafts, moving crafts, pretend play, inside the box, and other crafts. Our whole family had a blast making two of these larger-than-life creations. First, we made the tent out of a big box that previously housed a recliner. We cut off one side of the box, taped the three sides together, and made a fun tent for the kids to sit in and crawl through.

Second, we made the castle. We used a second recliner, box taped the open sides together, and followed the instructions for the turrets and drawbridge. It was slightly harder than the tent, but it still only took us between thirty minutes and an hour to make.

Both these projects led to hours upon hours of fun for my eight- and five-year-old children. My five-year-old is currently hanging out in her new favorite place to be. I highly recommend this book for family crafts you can do over and over again.
