Box Sculptures

What to do:

  1. Provide a variety of large and small boxes (many leftover household food boxes work great).
  2. Have children glue or tape the boxes together.
  3. Provide paint, markers, material scraps or paper if the children want to decorate their free-form creations.


  • For a group activity, have children build one large structure and then decorate it. Also, instead of boxes, you can use wood scraps, but beware of splinters.
