Recycled Craft- Castle

My daughter had to make something with recycled stuff for her school. The idea was sort of hers as she wanted to make a castle. She is pretty much into princes, princesses, castles and stuff now so it was not a surprising wish.We collected all sorts of card board boxes and cylinders, plastic containers and glued them up. We also put in a magnetic latch on one of the boxes. Came out pretty well and her teacher tells me she explained the whole process beautifully in class.
Castle of Recycled objects
Each of the towers has a lid and can hold stationary items .The boxes in the front double up as penstands in this huge DIY stationary set cum storage box in our castle craft!

Jungle Diorama

Jungle Diorama
My little one has various theme weeks in school and she loves to take something from home to "show off" It can be a chart or some pictures. Recently her theme in school was wild animals and we went all out and made a jungle diorama from an old cardboard box. A window was cut on the front of the cardboard box to make this jungle diorama. The background has pleated shiny paper stuck on it to create the jungle diorama scene.

We did a bit of recycling too.. since the animal pictures are mostly stickers or cut out from books we first stuck them on stiffer paper cut out from magazine covers.
