Next time you've finished with a big cardboard box, have fun using it to make some unusual prints. This one is ideal for toddlers and preschoolers - the bigger the box the better!

Time: 15 minutes
Age: Under 5s
Level: Easy

Materials
  • Large cardboard box
  • Paints and different types of brushes
  • Plain paper



  • Method
  • Lay out different colours of paint and different types of brushes.
  • Let the children paint the box anyway they wish.



  • When the paint is still wet, place a piece of paper gently on top and pat lightly.





  • Carefully peel the paper back off again to reveal your print.



  • Try using large sheets of paper to create your own unique wrapping paper.
