Product Description:

Beginning with the necessary tools for the project toolbox, the hands-on projects in this book provide the perfect way to repurpose all the shipping or warehouse store boxes in the garage! Along the way, valuable cardboard skills are learned, as students build castles and pirate ships, create a ring toss game, make masks and more.

Publisher Description:

From castles to animal masks, pirate ships, and even dinosaurs! You will be amazed at how much you can do with a simple cardboard box.

A DIY projects book for kids that use recycling as a way to build creativity, imagination, and interactive play for kids aged 7-12. It features clear step-by-step instructions and detailed photographic explanations that will inspire imaginative minds.

A box is just a box, right? Wrong! It could be a pirate ship, a butterfly, or a family of penguins! Out of the box will encourage kids to see a cardboard box as more than junk. Kids can build their imaginations and creative skills by reusing household cardboard. Learn to build and decorate a range of projects to share, wear, and play with.

This educational book will show kids how to:

  • Develop cardboard skills
  • Build a castle, city and pirate ship
  • Design penguins, butterflies, and rabbits
  • Create games like ring toss
  • Produce wearables like Pharaoh’s finery and masks
  • Decorate funky flowers and lazy lizards
  • And much, much more!
