During the last few months, parents & caregivers of all stripes have been looking for fun, creative ways to engage their children – and they’re often doing it with limited resources. Luckily there’s something that’s easy to find & easy to put to work to create fun crafts for kids: cardboard boxes, recycled of course. With a few basic supplies & some easy-to-follow instructions, you can turn recycled cardboard boxes into hours of individualized fun.
For starters, some colored duct tape can go a long way to making an art project – a kaleidoscope. It involves choosing the colors you want and cutting out a piece of cardboard that’s fashioned into a roll. If your kids need to see a game shrunk down in miniature, then it might be time to tackle a mini foosball table. Want more ideas to put those artistic, math, and special skills to the test?
