I've blogged before about the enormous pleasure to be had from a cardboard box. Kids love 'em, there are often exciting things in them and if they're big enough, at the end of the day knackered parents can hide in them. You can also use boxes of a certain size as lids for your little ones (think mute for a trumpet) which is where we got the inspiration for this Bank Holiday craft project.
Take one cardboard box; cut two holes for the eyes; cut two more for arms; paint the whole thing grey; decorate, and - bingo! You've got yourself a robot costume.
1. Cutting the holes
2. Painting the box
3. Adding some robotic decorations...
