Cardboard painting

This cute craft project is super easy and perfect for a weekend morning spent in pyjamas! The only things you need are some coloured paper, little pieces of thin cardboard (just cut an empty food box in pieces — make sure you have one straight edge!) and paint. For the crazy flies we used our fingers for the eyes and a black pen for the legs, but it’s also fun and easy to ‘paint’ cars this way, or robots, or crocodiles… Both my 4-year-old and my 6-year-old enjoyed this project, which is based on an activity I saw in Usborne’s Monster Things to Make and Do (available through Amazon UK or US ).

Enjoy your weekend!!
