It’s a box!

No, it’s a car!

What you need:

  • 1 cardboard box
  • 1 toilet paper tube
  • 3 paper plates
  • Glue (glue gun, craft glue – whatever you have)
  1. Cut 2 plates in half. 
  2. Attach to box with the flat part of your cut towards the floor to make wheels.
  3. Attach tube to flap inside box (on a short end of the box).
  4. Attach last plate to the tube to make your steering wheel.
  5. Let the kids have at it with paints, markers, crayons – whatever you feel like (or don’t feel like) cleaning up after – to decorate.


It took longer waiting for the glue gun to warm up than it did to assemble.  This will lead to a pretty full rainy day of fun.  I’m pulling out some stickers when the marker fun wears off.  ;-)


Voila!  Look how crafty I was before 8 AM.

There’s been a lot going on here in the past month.  I have so many projects to share!  I’ll probably be able to while the kids are busy with the box car.  hehe
