Tissue Box Elevator


Age Range: 2+

Supplies Needed:
Tissue box
Construction Paper
Glue Stick
Cardboard
Masking Tape
Markers




Z loves to upcycle everything and anything, especially anything cardboard. I am not sure what the appeal is, but he always needs to create something new with cardboard.

This day he decided he wanted an elevator. So we got to work.




First I cut an elevator door opening. Then we covered the whole box with construction paper.

We had some other cardboard floating around and cut out 2 elevator doors and taped them on the inside of the box so that they open.

I helped Z decorate it how he wanted it and we have an elevator!

  2. It's looking really great. I am sure it works, a lot more can be done with nice cardboard boxes.
