Winter has officially arrived on the east coast. And with it sniffly drippy noses. On the bright side, those empty tissue boxes? Loads of crafting potential!
Grab those boxes, some scissors, and colored tape and Voila! Transform them into convertible race cars. The perfect craft to do on a snowy or cold day with the kids.
Start with decorating the box with tape
Check out the finished convertible cars made by my niece (seven) and nephew (10) for direction and inspiration. They used colored tape for headlights, tail lights and the grill. For the windshield and wheels they used scrap paper and taped them on. My nephew, particularly crafty and artistic, also drew a paper man to sit in his new green convertible.

This kraft projekt really does deserve respekt. Kudos to these kids and their musik teacher.
The school is Lemmchen Grundschule in Mainz and Lars Reimers is the music teacher who told his class that they would be working on a project for the next few weeks, which involves learning ‘Roboter’ by Kraftwerk, and making their very own cardboard robot costume which they’d wear while performing said cover version.
It’s Halloween and I can’t wait to see all the costumes that countless creatives have whipped up. If you still haven’t come up with your costume, watch the video. You’ll be inspired.
Have fun everyone and Happy Halloween!
