I found the blog The Cardboard Collective yesterday and I am in love. The blog is written Amber Dohrenwend from the suburbs of Tokyo. Creative and filled with inspiration for cardboard projects.
Cardboard is a wonderful material and a visit to the, The Cardboard Collective, will spark your imagination. There are also tips about sustainable building and living.
I have selected some photos to show what marvelous things you can create from this surprisingly versatile material.
The first photo is a great idea for a Xmas decoration that can also be sent to grandparents and friends.
- You can write little messages on the cardboard to make it extra special.
- Or why not a story, poem. . .
Chameleons are fascinating and this mask is stunning. What animal mask do you want to create? For some inspiration for chameleons, lizards and frogs, go here.
I have written before about creating an inspiration board and use it for storytelling or monster projects. Go here to see a board created by The Cardboard Project to make this grasshopper costume. Cardboard fun at its very best.
I hope you fill inspired to create something with your child. And do involve them in the planning – planning and dreaming are important parts of the creative process.
