Crafts with cardboard boxes
Earth Day is right around the corner! I have been doing a lot of crafts with tissue paper lately, which means I have had a crapload of tissue paper scraps to throw away. I always hate doing that, because I know you can do cool stuff with small pieces of tissue paper, but it’s incredibly impractical to save them after a craft project.
Until I come up with a cool tissue paper saving system, I figured I should do something with the scraps right away, because, you know, it’s not really the right week to throw things away like that! So I had already set aside my kids’ raisin boxes and Jello boxes, and somehow making aliens was the logical next step!
You can totally make these cardboard box aliens without tissue paper scraps and without the mess of decoupage. Just use paint instead.
What You Need to Make this Easy Alien Craft for Kids
- Jello, raisin, or other small empty carboard boxes
