How to Make a Cardboard Box Car

How to make a Cardboard Box CarThis cardboard box car was so very easy to make and made the toddler so very happy.

I had been saving the box for a while intending to do something with it. Eventually Mr B kind of insisted that I did as my pile of accumulated rubbish craft supplies was reaching momentous proportions and threatening to take over the dining room completely.

This week I finally decided to turn this cardboard box into a car for the boy and here is how to do it:

Take one large cardboard box

Cut off the two longest side flaps and one shorter end-flap, retaining the fourth end-flap.

Fold this flap in half so that it forms a windscreen and bonnet at the end of the box. Secure this to the sides of the box with packing tape.

How to make a cardboard box carTurn the box on its side and trace around something round to draw a semi-circular doorway. Cut out. This really has made it much easier for the boy to climb in and out of the car.

Use something round to draw four wheels and a steering wheel from the discarded panels or other cardboard. Cut out and stick the wheels to the car.

How to make a cardboard box carUse another discarded flap and tape to the right side of the windscreen and bottom of the car. Stick your steering wheel to this with tape or glue. I also made a central horn for the steering wheel by adding the top of a fabric softener bottle.

With a thick black marker draw in your windscreen frame, steering wheel, hubcaps etc.

Add headlights and a radiator grill. I used cupcake cases for the headlights. Finally throw in a couple of cushions for some upholstery.

And last but not least…

Make one little boy very happy!

Not only will they love sitting in it but give them a pack of crayons to decorate it and you may just get an hour to yourself!
