Revolving chair made of cardboard - Think-Pick-Create Project

Another TPC project during August was to make something out of random stuff and left overs from other projects. We had a good amount of cardboard corners, cardboard bits, felt, cardboard rolls, paints and adhesive.

Made by Adrija, grade 3
We got these cardboard corners with a huge cardboard box and other packing material which came with our furniture purchase recently.



One of the eight year olds wanted to create a revolving chair + she wanted to ROTATE!!! :)


Thinking of rotating...an idea struck me and I found the cardboard rolls useful once again. We needed two cardboard tubes rolls with a difference of about 3mm in the diameter. ( cardboard rolls that come with aluminium foil and the toilet rolls can also be used). The thicker one was cut to length and glued to the base. We used the piece of (mobile phone) packing foam for the base. We could also use a cardboard instead.



The smaller one was glued to the base of the chair. Once dry just slide them in together and rotate chair!! Voila!!!
It makes a great add on to a child's doll house collection.
