Any little boy or girl will love making and playing with this shiny robot. We named him Roger but you can dream up your own name.



Roger is mostly a recycled robot, using empty cereal packets and other bits and bobs from around the house.

Time: 20 minutes
Age: Under 5's, 5-10's
Level: Medium



Robot, Box, craft, Toddler, homemade, preschool


Materials
Selection of empty cardboard boxes. Cereal packets are ideal and you'll need a large one for the body and smaller one for the head.
Any other pieces for recycling that you have in the house. We used milk carton lids and cardboard tubes.
Aluminium foil
Glue
Pens

Method
Wrap the large and small box (body and head) in aluminium foil as if you were wrapping a present.

Glue the smaller box to the top of the larger box to create your robot body and head.

Glue on lids for eyes and nose.
Decorate some cardboard tubes for legs and glue to the bottom of the body.

Use plenty of glue to stick on the legs

Cut flaps at the end of your cardboard arms and fold out to make a larger surface area to glue


Decorate two more cardboard tubes for arms. I cut little flaps all around to make them easier to glue to the sides of the robot body.
Add any other decorations you like. We had an old foil container and some extra milk carton lids which made a great control panel on the front.

You could also use whiteboard marker pens to draw extra details.
