This book is about using what you have to create something new.
In a world of finite resources and growing consumption, Mini Mad Things want to encourage the creative use of simple, recycled materials, like the humble cardboard box, to create play. Encouraging our little ones to re-purpose what they already have is not only great for our planet, it also requires creative thinking to see new possibilities beyond the original purpose, helping our children become the resourceful inventors of the future.
Inside the book you will find:
15 PROJECT IDEAS to make, using cardboard boxes, including rockets, a huge marble run, cubby houses, dress-up costumes, a city, cars and lots more.
Lots of other fun creative ideas and a special bonus project.
Inspiration for making a creative space at home for your little ones.
A list of basic craft supplies to build your craft cupboard.
Ideas for using household RECYCLING and SUSTAINABLE crafting tips.
Simple building technique ideas for creating with cardboard.
110 pages of beautiful images.
Each of the project ideas presented in the book are not only fun to make but also create something that your little ones can then play with. For example, building a huge pirate ship that they can then sail the seven seas in!
Please note there is a small crease on the corner of the spine of these books and they have been reduced in price to allow for this.
