Cardboard City

Start saving those cardboard boxes and packages.

Use some of these paper sculpture techniques to build a crazy skyscraper, or fairy village or The Burrow from Harry Potter. The sky is the limit!

Intermediate students can attempt this project solo.

Primary students will need to collaborate with an older sibling or adult.

Start by practicing some paper building skills:

Then draw up some ideas for your building(s).

Some things to think about: What materials do you have to work with?

How will you make sure that it doesn't fall over? Are you planning to build up or out?

Where will this project live when you aren't working on it?

Pro-Tip: Carefully unfold a box, turn it inside out and glue/tape back together. Now you have a blank canvas for decorating!
