If you've got a box, you've got it made! With step-by-step instructions and hundreds of illustrations, this book can help kids transform a cardboard box into easy-to-make playthings—and teach them firsthand about recycling. Start with the basics: a box and an imagination. Tissue boxes, cereal boxes, corrugated boxes, and cardboard boxes can all be put to good use. Then just follow directions for dozens of projects.
The possibilities are endless! Thinking beyond the box, kids can make a puppet stage, sports car, propeller airplane, robot, tin man costume, moon suit, giant dragon, miniature golf game, musical box band, and much more. It all adds up to enjoying a fun day in an earth-friendly way—a creative, environmental lesson that kids will love!
