The Jewish holiday of Purim starts this coming Saturday night (Sunday night for those living in Jerusalem proper) so lets turn up the heat and get crafting! These cute pizza box top robot clowns are just one idea to get you inspired. For starters, take a look around the house and use what you have on hand — the very best way to really truly get creative without having to run to the store, and spend time (and money) unnecessarily!
And truly, these robots came about literally on account of the above advice. Last Tuesday I was working hard making decorations for a community Purim party, and my kids were treated to some takeout pizza since mommy was too busy to even think about preparing food, not to mention cleaning up the huge mess she had made, yikes. Upon arriving home, I was greated by two medium size pizza boxes whose tops were clean, and my huge pile of crafting mess, mainly little scraps of paper. So of course, I thought that some pizza box top robot clowns would be a perfect start to our Purim crafting. With only a few days left to truly get into the Purim spirit, my advice is, go large, go funny, and go recycled.....here's how:
- A pizza box top, cut off from the bottom portion of the box.
- Hot glue or regular glue
- paper scraps
- a black marker
Find some carton robot images to inspire you, and make some small sketches to see what might work. Then using glue, paper and scissors, turn those pizza box tops into robots dressed for Purim, or any party for that matter.
