My son and I got so excited the moment we learned that we will receive a copy of DIY Box Creations by post in a couple of days. And here it arrived! It was such a pleasant surprise as we were not very sure of what to expect in this book. We found out that following easy steps and using basic materials, kids and their parents can create an “Airplane”! Just as big as one could get inside it. Sounds interesting? What about making your own “Rocket Ship”?! Or a “Car”? An “Inside Doghouse” for your favourite dog? My son even wants to create a “Retro Stove” so he can prepare all the pretend meals with his little sister on it. He wants to build a beautiful “Dollhouse” for her too. A “Fort” to hide from creepers? What about a “Lemonade Stand”? And the list goes on and on. These are just examples of twelve fun and unique cardboard box projects that you can create as a family all together.
This wonderful book includes easy step-by-step instructions to create big projects. Once you start working, your imagination and inventive spirit will lead your way to be more creative and come up with personalized versions that will suit the tastes and preferences of your children.
Courtney Sanchez is a stay-at-home-mom of three boys who started crafting herself to keep her kids stimulated and active. Courtney advises that creating such projects with children will help bonding with them and building a healthy, long lasting relationship, while teaching kids about different colours, textures and shapes.
The book is recommended for ages 8+. However, younger children will enjoy helping their parents create these projects and will definitely have lots of fun playing with them.
So what will we do now? Let’s roll those sleeves up and start making a … “Puppet Theatre”! This would be an excellent project as it will help us with our work on storytelling skills that we are practicing these days. Let’s get started!
DIY Box Creations is published by Courtney Sanchez, cover price £6.99.
