I don’t know about you…but we seem to accumulate LOTS of cardboard in our house – from Costco shopping trips, Amazon purchases, etc. And…it sits. In the garage. Until someone decides to cart it off to the Recycling Facility. UGH!
Well, every time I turn around I see another incredibly cute project that someone has made with cardboard. It is amazing what you can do with something you would otherwise, hopefully, be recycling. So, I thought it might be fun to show you just a few of the options available to you…should you decide that cardboard crafting might be something you and your little ones might want to try one day.
Do you have a budding pizza chef in your house? Then why not make a pizza oven from a shoe box…so easy and would surely provide hours of fun.
Maybe a rocket ship is what you had in mind. Check out this creation from Built By Kids.
Are you hooked yet? Well, I have been following Ikatbag.com for quite some time. Lier is a VERY accomplished mother of three beautiful girls – and – she knows her cardboard. Almost three years ago, she did a fabulous post – How To Work With Cardboard. This is a must read for anyone who really wants to get into cardboard construction. Lier has lots of posts about the cardboard projects she has made over the years – one of my favorites is Automobiles from Busytown – she made a car, a scooter, a stoplight, gas pump, car wash…it made me feel inadequate and weary just reading about it all. She is awesome!
So…do you feel motivated? Are you going to start hoarding cardboard and embark on your own project? If you do…please send me a photo at email@example.com. I would love to see them. And rest assured when Our Little Darling is next here…cardboard building will be on the agenda, and yes…we will share!
