CARDBOARD BOX CAR

Here is an idea to turn an empty cookie carton/box into a car.


































We used  McVitie's Hobnobs boxes. Any cardboard carton of the required size will do.The images below show the opened out carton and the base model it has to turn into.
Here is how the base model was created. 
After the required cuts and folds glue drops were used to stick the box into the required shape. 
PVA glue can be used as well.

The body, windows and wheels were painted using basic acrylic paints. A white card stock/ thick paper was used to cut out the lights, number plate and alloys and the details were painted. The car was left to dry and the required outlines were traced for extra details and a finished look!


The car inspired many more cars in various colors and styles :)


































Thanks for viewing and enjoy creating! Do post your car on our FB page!

LAST MINUTE SCHOOL PROJECT : Making a model of the Colosseum using cardboard.

Children often come in with last minute projects to complete. Here is one such example.We printed a few pictures of the Colosseum for guidance.Corrugated cardboard or cardboard box were used for the base and the main building. The cardboard cutout of a carton was easy to roll and secure, so it is better to choose a slightly softer version of cardboard. Paper tape was good to secure the shape and later painted so it doesn't show that much. Being a school project I prefer to use paints the student is more familiar with due to the time constraint so we used poster paints. For the base we covered a rectangular piece of cardboard with a green sheet of crepe paper.



I must say that it turned out impressive for a quick project! The best part was when Manya carried it home with a big smile!

FREE-HAND DRAWING - why it is good for children

Free hand drawing is one of the activities which a parent can incorporate into their child's daily routine for the development of hand-eye coordination, which is itself crucial for the overall physical development of the child and is the basis for other creative activities like painting, craft making, sculpture, and more. In most cases, children take to drawing naturally and enjoy creating on their own. Always nice to keep papers, sketch books and pencils handy for them, even while travelling!

Some toys are designed to assist hand-eye coordination development, like fitting things together(one can use simple unbreakable cups and bowls too), jigsaw puzzles and so on.
In many instances we do come across students who panic because they are unable to complete their drawing related projects or usually end up doing them with much dissatisfaction.

Practice in free hand drawing does make children confident with their drawing projects and school assignment related artworks as they grow up.…
