My son became interested in hand-made paper andcardboard, and he asked how to make a house with his own hands. To lodge there our toy men, we needed to make a volumetric piece of paper. In addition to the above, we also needed: glue, scissors and a pencil. We decided to make a house from the "timber". Also see our MK cardboard lock. First we prepared slips of paper, about 3 cm wide, from which we made tubes with a pencil. Sheet A4 fold in half, cut through the fold. Halves are marked with lines, and can also be folded. Then cut into strips. A child in 5-6 years can easily cope with these tasks, then admires his hand-made crafts made with his own hands! Then from the white sheet of cardboard we make a house. We decided to make one side without a wall so that there was a big entrance to the house. Bend the sheet into three parts. The middle part is made with a triangular top (like a roof), the extreme parts are the sides of the roof, which you need to glue together when joining. Look for the width of your beams to match the width of the wall. Bulky tubes of paper can be glued together at once, or then glued them to the finished assembled house. We simply decorated the roof with colored paper. This is such a cool, voluminous house we made of paper with a child of 6 years with our own hands. See more paper crafts for kids.
