It is always so worth it when we roll up our sleeves and make something with our children. What we are teaching them is that a cereal box is not just a box. It's a bank, a skyscraper or other endless possibilities.
Sometimes it can be a little hectic to make something with the kids.
Trust me, I know this.
My little handyman "helped" me form our imaginary city by pulling out half the roll of tape! But I know he will always feel a part of all of our activities even though it may make more of a mess.
The girls had a great time painting and deciding which box would be which building. The fun wasn't just in the finished project--but in the creation!
Creativity always goes something like that.
Want to make your own cereal box city?
Empty out your boxes and then find the seam along the long side of the box, Open the seam.
Flip the box inside out opening all the seams then once flipped out where the brown side is showing, glue or tape your boxes shut. Form triangle roofs my removing the front sides of the box on one end then cutting out triangles. Replace the triangles, fold the sides of the box to form a roof and tape.
Draw details on your buildings with marker then paint or color your boxes.
Have a great weekend! Make something!
