Yuliya is sharing a cute and simple cardboard project with us today that also makes a fun playdate or party craft. Thanks Yuliya and welcome!

Cute Cardboard Creatures – Materials:

– Cardboard

– String

– Paint

– Glue


– Cut out cardboard shapes in different sizes with smaller shapes overlapping to make features like noses and mouths which you can glue over the larger pieces of cardboard.

– Attach string where you want moveable parts and joints.

– Have kids paint the cardboard features and bodies to their choosing.
