Cardboard Robots

Our cardboard robots may be a little funny-looking but the boys had a blast putting them together! I cut out some strips and squares from cardboard boxes, then stacked the pieces together to drill holes through, added some duct-tape robot features (I used Mer’s method to easily cut out duct-tape shapes), and let the kids go at it with some metal brad fasteners (make sure you get the long kind, about 1/2″).

    I love this idea, it’s such a great way to use up random bits of cardboard and robots are always popular with kids. I have featured this on The Crafty Crow today!
