Box model making is a great and cheap way for your children to be creative. You can use all your recyclable rubbish (just make sure that the objects are clean and not glass): cereal boxes or any other cupboard box, kitchen roll tubes, plastic tubs such as grape, strawberry containers or plastic bottles.
Your child will be able to be create and make anything. They will be able to practise their fine motor skills when drawing, painting, colouring in on the creation. They will also be able to practise their cutting skills when using scissors. They will be able to problem solve by thinking about what they want to make and how to make it.
