Turn Ordinary Objects into Cool Toys, Decorations, Gifts and more with Ready-to-Cut Templates!
Just cut out the templates in the back of this book, color them and let your imagination run wild! Use them to create fun robots or silly monsters out of cardboard and clothespins. Transform paper rolls into an Awesome Paper Rocket or a set of Pretend Watches. You can even use egg cartons to make toy boats or a small-world jungle, desert or enchanting castle.
You’ll also find tons of fun bonus ideas to spark your creativity! Like building a chalk race car track for your Really Cool Race Car. Or using ice pop sticks to make playful puppets for your egg carton scenes. Every project includes at least one cutout with visual step-by-step instructions so the crafts are easy to make.
With this collection of 35 simple and fun activities, and a handy pair of scissors, you can create exciting possibilities with everyday items!
