With her awesome cardboard constructions and toys she encourages you to think outside the confines and corners of the cardboard box. I have been wanting to make an easel for the girls to draw. Last month I made a couple of table top easels using cardboard moxes. But they looked too much like rather ugly box houses and after the first couple of drawings, the girls lost interest and I had to throw it away.
Inspired by the kind of stuff here but not wanting to spend the money on it, I am now trying to make a standing easel. This morning, I used about twelve kitchen towel rolls and duct tape to make the base.
Kimira, I love your house-shaped easels! The fact that they lasted a couple of drawings each is evidence that they served their purpose well. Yay for you! Can't wait to see your standing easel completed- what a fun way to use kitchen towel rolls. Did you really save them all? See, that inspires me. I always toss mine straight into the recycling bin because I can never think of what to make with them. For shame. Now I know. Thanks!ReplyDelete
