You can decorate the covered Kleenex boxes with a variety of things; stickers, markers, crayons, colored cotton balls, honestly pretty much anything you have laying around the house! I just recommend picking up some large googley eyes to give the car some attitude! However, you can just draw them on to save costs. My son LOVES making the eyes move. So, that's not an option at my house. (Oh, how wonderful it would be to be amused by such simple things!)
Oh! If your family is anything like mine - innocent crafting can turn into a fight if you don't keep nearby to be the referee! What one cousin has - the other surely will want!
Here is our finished products after we had glued on the wheels & googley eyes! Adorable, right?! They are ready to be played with, or even turned back into a Kleenex box if you want to add a little decor to your little ones bedroom. (just tuck those tissues back in & place on the nightstand!)
I hope we inspired everyone today! If anyone decides to make a Kleenex box car - send me a picture! I'd love to see how yours turned out! Thank you, Rebecca for allowing us to take part in your Friday craft series.
PS. I will be sharing more fun and simple children's craft ideas each Thursday and would love to feature some of the crafty things YOU like to do with your kids! If you're interested in guest posting here on simple as that, email me with your fun and simple friday craft day idea & you could be featured!
