box racing car

arts and crafts

Having just moved into the house we had an abundance of strong brown cardboard boxes sitting in the garage. As my youngest sleeps for over an hour a day I needed to do something to amuse H during this time.

Starting off with just one large removal box, we taped up the box so that it was fully enclosed, and then using a box knife, I cut out the circular doors and the seating area. As we wanted to paint the car we needed cover over all of the tape with paper.
