I had a speedy trip back to the Creature Clothes workshop over the weekend, kids in tow. My little girls have a desk in our office that was mine when I was little. But there was only one of me and there are two of them - we had a chair emergency.
So... it was time to make one!
We thought the result was pretty awesome - basic, but awesome.
Here's how to make your very own Cardboard Box Kiddie Armchair
|1. Take one empty cardboard box, sealed at one end, open at the other. |
A nice sturdy one is best
|Being very careful, cut halfway down 2 sides, on each side, |
as in the diagram below
Always be careful of your fingers when using a
cutting knife - this part should not be done by children
|This is where to cut into your box|
|Push the first flap in - the inner turn over of the box should pop down to support the seat|
|Push the top flap in to create the back of the seat|
|And there we have it! A pretty cool little mini armchair!|
|Just add one small person!|
