So, I want to share these two methods that we use in our home for making art projects more spontaneous, less of a chore to cleanup, very versatile, and 100% recyclable! The first item we use is a kind of art caddy that keeps brushes, paints and water cups organized and spill-safe. First just gather your supplies: a small cardboard box, pencil, serrated knife, and all of the items that you want to organize in the caddy. Arrange the items as you would like them, and then just trace around each piece. Use the serrated knife to cut just inside the area you traced. Project Gallery: The Cardboard Collective.

Cardboard Toys Roundup

Emily loves playing post office. After a trip to the Children's Museum a couple of years ago, she wanted to recreate the experience of sorting and delivering letters. Over the ensuing months, we collected various accessories (scroll down) to help her do just that - a small mail bag, re-used envelopes, square stickers for stamps, rectangular stickers for address labels, and a random coat or two for her uniform. This weekend, watching her and Jenna make a multitude of letters, an idea formed in my head that I couldn't get out. Sweet Village Birthday Party.

Busy mama Natalie (she gave birth to her second daughter just 3 weeks before this party) built a village – yes, a village – for her daughter’s 2nd birthday.

Oh, and handmade felt food and a yummy buffet to top it all off.

In fact, at one time, real rough-and-tumble playthings — such as the roadster you see here — were commonly made from cardboard . . . and were quite able to endure the punishment dished out by an earlier (and maybe even rowdier!)

Generation. None of this was lost on research staffer Dennis Burkholder, who's always been fascinated by paper art . . . and by things costing very little (or no) money. OK, so you've laid out your two 48" X 60" corrugated sheets, outlined the car's various parts on them as indicated, and cut the pieces from the paper panels. Our little runabout's axle supports are, like the frame, tubular members capped with wood.

Instructions (briefly)- The main fuselage is made from one box and tail wing etc made from other bits and pieces. First open one end of box, which will be the bottom, then tape the edges together. The other end of the box which is on top and closed will be cut into the shape of the wings, one for each side (tape them on). Cut out a round circle for the front and long strip to match, which you tape onto the circle and fuselage.
