DIY PAPER BOX
Here is another activity you could do to incorporate your kids artwork into gift giving. These are also great for storage, organizing, and just for fun!
You’ll need a square of paper any size. Fold the paper diagonally both ways to make an “x” with the creases.
Then fold it horizontally both ways as well (unfolding in between)
You’ll have a square that looks like this (this is upside down)
Fold each corner into the center
When those are all folded into the center, fold the top half – half way down
Do the same for the bottom – then unfold just the top and bottom half all the way
Turn the paper so the unfolded ends are pointing to the sides now
Now fold this top half – half way down to the center
Do the same to the other side
Now unfold these sides leaving the triangle at the bottom – these are your first 2 sides of the box
Next you’re going to take the pointed ends and fold them in so it folds over itself making another wall
Do the same to the other side and you have yourself a box!
If your kids are anything like mine, it won’t be hard filling them!
Make another box 1/2 – 1″ smaller and you have a top/bottom!
We made a big one with wrapping paper so your paper doesn’t need to be thick
The boys LOVED this project and already have lots of ways they want to use/give their new skill. Happy folding!
