Modelling with left over packaging before it goes for recycling is a fun way for kids to use their imagination and create their own models. It doesn't have to be a work of art, it's just really good fun.

Time: 20 minutes
Age: 5-10's
Level: Easy

Materials
Glue and/or sticky tape
Left over packagaging



Recycled, box, modelling, preschool


Method
There aren't really any step by step instructions for this activity. Leave your child to their creative pleasure, sticking and gluing items together to make whatever they like.
You can talk to them about what they're doing and their ideas.
