My daughter is at the age where it is impossible for her to sit still for more than a minute. So yesterday (on a rainy day) I decided to get crafty with her. We made a cardboard car which turned out to be perfect for pretend play and we had so much fun too.
What you need:
- a cardboard box in the right size (I used one from a grocery store)
- 5 cardboard circles (4 for the tires and 1 for the steering wheel)
- Paper towel roll (for the steering column)
- Any kid’s stickers
This car was really simple to make. The wheels I made by cutting a circles out of cardboard and glued to the side of the box. I let my daughter draw on the wheels and used some stickers to decorate them. The steering column is a paper towel roll. I glued roll on the cupboard circle (I cut before) for the steering wheel. For lights, I cut some cardboard in rectangular shape and glued them on the front of the car. My daughter decorated the outside of the car by using some more stickers.
