Make a plane, an oven, a car or even your own city inside this imaginative craft book where a cardboard box is not just a box.
My children have always had the ability to create many things with cardboard, no box is left untouched. From cereal boxes, to toy packaging and of course the oversized delivery boxes that are forever turning up at our door but the lovely people at Priddy books have proved that they really do come up with big ideas for little people with this book. They have thought outside of the box (pun intended).
Inside of the pages of this book we meet boxy who introduces you to all the equipment you may need when tackling these projects from the basics to the special tools like metallic paints and washi tape.
And at the back you will discover templates ready to help add those details that will make your projects look more realistic.
Each project is layed out step by step, even the bigger tasks are easy to follow with the mix of text and images but the end results are all just as satisfying to see. Every one uses different size boxes, you and your childen get to recycle in the best way, by getting creative.
These creations can be made independently or in a group, a brilliant way to promote team work! Our first project was the cool car.
My eldest and I worked together to make a tiny car fit for a tiny girl. With moving steering wheel and cool number plates, the only thing that was missing was the paintwork (we'll add it later). Between the time making and the time playing in the car once made, plenty of hours were passed without us even realising. And of course with the basic design now available to us we can make cars of all sizes, we might even progress to lorries.
This book gives kids and adults the ideas and tools to expand their imaginations further, showing that you don't need expensive toys to have fun. A great aid to pretend play.
