Here's a nice spur of the moment craft to get your kids interested in three-dimensional thinking. I was thinking modern art sculpture, while my five year old was thinking tunnels. And actually his version was more practical as he then used it together with some Playmobile figures and cars! A whole city to use with a train set would be wonderful! I whipped up the version below to give you an idea of what I had in mind for the project, modern art of course.
There are so many possibilities with just some strips of paper, tape and a base of some kind! And how about some weaving with the left-over strips? Or get out the paints and paint a backdrop for the sculptures for a really complete project!
- Strips of heavy paper, preferably pre-cut by a parent
- Tape, I used electrical tape which is good for kids, but honestly it is lacking the necessary tackiness to keep some of the pieces adhered. I had to add some hot glue to the tunnel to keep it intact.
- A base of some kind, cardboard, a shoebox, a piece of styrofoam
