Cardboard creations

Discover your inner inventor and get creative with cardboard in our fun and simple activity for kids.

Can you help save the North Pole? Discover your inner inventor with our fun design sheets, perfect for a class activity or at home throughout the festive season. Our entertaining, recycled box challenge will put your creativity and imagination to the test - what will you design?

Using a cardboard box of any size, along with other recyclables you can find and use safely, we challenge you to get creative and bring one of our ideas to life, or go a step further and invent your own project. Download our free activity sheets below.

For primary aged children, play independently or work as a team to make a castle, create a junk-modelled robot, make a rocket ready for launch or invent an original musical instrument for a festive band.
