I was busy over the holidays making a new toy, a washing machine.
It's simply made from a cardboard box, a basket, milk jug caps and tape.
I really enjoy making toys from recyclables and cardboard boxes are easy
to get and very versatile.
I was inspired to make the washing machine from this post at Craftster.
One corner of our classroom has been transformed into a laundry room.
It has clothes to sort into bins,
a rack to hang the clothes to dry,
and a ironing board.
The children spent a lot of time this morning figuring out how to use it.
The lid was too floppy so I added the ribbon this afternoon.
The washing machine will probably find a permanent spot in our
house play area in a couple of weeks.
Have you used a cardboard box to make something in your program?
Do you have a favourite blog that recycles boxes into toys that you can share?
