junk modelling…

Today we modelled with cardboard.
For weeks we have stock piled the cardboard recycling… cereal boxes, egg boxes, loo roll inners.
For weeks I have been nagged.. ‘mummy when can we do junk modelling?’
Today we made a start.
Charlie’s creation: a space ship
Rufus’ creation: a tractor
They really enjoyed the process of finding a use of odd shapes and sticking it all together.
{the tractor lasted all of 20 minutes, before he got bored and pulled it to bits!}.
So… that’s number 2 ticked off the list.

  • brilliant! junk modelling is really challenging…did you make something lou? xx

  • Looks like great fun!
    Is that a Dorset cereal box I see? Have you entered the code to win a camper van? I may becoming obsessed with the idea of winning one. Maybe I will manifest it!!
    I love your list.x

  • Hmmm I spy the box for the Orla jar I’ve had my eye on- very decadent robots!

  • That is some rather chic ‘junk’ you have there – I spot Orla Kiely!

    I love their concentrated serious expressions.

  • I so need to do this – we have mountains of cardboard piled up and I was lacking inspiration. Love the idea of junk modelling!

  • Looks like great fun. It’s difficult constantly coming up with new ideas to keep them occupied, but you look like your going well :)
