Cardboard Fun with @create_make_and_play


This evening I made a small world box. It was quick and easy to make and a great choice if you’re looking for something to do with your kids today.

To create the small world town….

I stuck some road tape down, added shoe inserts and used chalk pens to add some buildings, pond and trees.

I then added a few of the boys wooden trees, buildings, cars and people to bring it to life.⁣
