This is one of the first cardboard craft of us. It might be even the first. As you see, it is quite simple to make. :)This is one of the first cardboard craft of us. It might be even the first. As you see, it is quite simple to make. 🙂
Until now we made many different puzzles but this one was inspired by MB’s shirt. MB has a very beautiful mustache collection printed shirt. Puzzles are great for many learning skills and this time our theme is famous mustaches of these famous persons.
After drawing and cutting our newspaper animals, we filled them with newspaper, stapled the edges and then colored them with watercolor. They turned into super cute sea creatures.
So great to create your own games from recyclable materials, isn’t it? This time we added seashell handles just to give the puzzle a cooler appearance.
MB loves spending time in the kitchen. He prepares pasta, muffins and smoothie himself. When I ask his dream job, he directly says “Cook”. And he wants to be a cook, because he wants to cook for all homeless kids. This answer is melting my heart. This activity is great for boosting self-confidence, too. We named the place “MB’s Food Corner”, we were customers and MB was the chef. We ordered and he cooked, served for us. When you look into the setup, I am sure that you will see many skills in it, even more than I wrote below.
Small beads are very dangerous for under 2 year old kids, but these paper roll beads are not. If you want to prepare a fine motor activity for your 2 years old, this is great idea then. It is not only stringing but also sorting activity. Just cut the paper rolls into 3 pieces and use washi tapes to diversify them.
Only takes 5 minutes to prepare these cute glasses. Kids are very curious about the new things they see around. If one day you kid sees someone who wear glasses and asks about it, you can prepare a quick one to help him/her empathize with that person. By this was you give her the chance to decorate his/her own glasses. They can also be used as a part of your special day costume.
Paper rolls are great for creating very cute small houses. You can dream and design your own lovely cottages. Especially on dark winter days this small world will make you have fun.
If our cake sprinkles are out of date, we can make a beautiful 2 tier cardboard cake. 🍰🍰🍰Do you want some? You can find its tutorial photo on this post. And you can use it as a model cake at birthday parties.
It is possible to create dozens of DIY puzzles with ccardboards. DIY puzzles are both the best recycling projects and great for many skills.
