In our 101 activities to do with children’s Free PDF, we recommended you to recycle cardboard doing a city to play with children (activity 55). Cardboard is around us and we do not give too much importance, but this material is ideal for making crafts with children in a easy way
Chris Gilmour handles Cardboard like clay, and by seeing his pieces of art, you certainly stick out thousands of craft ideas to do with your children, because this product is easy to get, very pliable and ideal for children to play with.
Recycling cardboard is child’s play, unless you decide to do a complete car cardboard. Only then, your patience will be at stake.
Cardboard came from wood pulp, is a useful material and you can find it in hundreds of ways in our daily lives. Some artists like Chris are able to see in this material, the ideal vehicle to create their works.
Our second cardboard artist is Daniel Agdag, photographer and filmmaker, who performed last year, an exhibition called “Sets for a Film I’ll Never Make”
The cardboard models are so evocative and full of details, that create an intense cinematic atmosphere.
The examples that we have shown you are perhaps quite artistic, but they give you a powerful idea of the incredible possibilities offered by cardboard to create toys.
