My kids had a great time today @artplaykids exploring some first year university architecture students Cardboard Spaces Creations. With a bit of time and expertise you can build anything from cardboard boxes.
The maze and climbing frames were impressive
And some of the intricate fine cardboard creations my daughter found were even more so
But then my kids starting cutting up boxes and created some nifty creations themselves using all sorts of inspiration.
From my 6 year old son – The (cardboard) Titanic and my 3 year daughter a little treasure chest.
My 8 year old daughter created a hot rod (here she is tracing out some wheels)
Its great to get creative with some cardboard boxes, scissors and tape to build from inspiration and discover. The kids will love what they can do with boxes and today even interior design can make some use of them. And with what Apple and others have done with box design, they’re a thing of beauty in some cases.
