Doors and Windows Coloring Printable For DIY Recycled Town, Cardboard City or Paper Dollhouse

Doors and Window Printables a fun DIY kids craft toy made out of recycling #diykids #printable #greencrafts #rainbowcraft

 

Save time making DIY toy houses and buildings with recycled materials by printing these lovely doors and windows.

That way you can use the extra time to make entire towns, cities or even a huge dollhouse mansion (or would that be called a “dollmansion”?).

* Rainbow Town was inspired by the book “My Colour is Rainbow” by Agnes Hsu, a short children’s book about acceptance (much needed nowadays!) *

About the printable

It is a PDF with 3 pages:

  • Doors
  • Windows
  • Signs

The Doors and Windows come in a sort-of medieval looking style and a few of them can “open and close” for extra fun.

The Signs page comes with a big “Welcome to Rainbow Town” entrance sign because this printable came to life for a guest post I had the chance to make with the amazing Hello Wonderful (you can see the full tutorial here).

There are also a bunch of blank signs so the kids can draw whatever symbols or words they need for their buildings.

In the Rainbow Town, we included symbols for a Pastry shop, a Flower shop, a Hat shop and a School (which I clearly chose badly because my wife thought the building with the apple symbol was a fruit shop, lol).

Welcome to Rainbow town sign for a recycled town project. A fun DIY kids craft toy made out of recycling #rainbows #kidscraft #papertown

How to use it:

Super easy!

  • Paint or wrap in recycling paper any cardboard box or whatever empty package you have without bugs in it.
  • Choose which of the windows and doors would fit better for your building.
  • Color them in, cut them out and paste them in place.
  • Voilá! You have a building!

If you’d like to see a complete step-by-step tutorial on how the toilet-roll houses and juice-box buildings of Rainbow Town were made, hop over to the guest post at Hello Wonderful.

Teamwork and Community Activity for Kids:

If you have a group of kids, have them all make one or two buildings of their choice and put together a town where all of them contribute to make it beautiful!

You can expect to have several of the same type of building, and that’s ok! (Police stations and Supermarkets will probably be easy to find in your town) you can always encourage the kids to make more buildings if you want the town to have a more diverse range of public spaces 🙂

Easy Miniature Campfire Craft for Kids Using Rocks and Sticks

Easy Kids campfire craft by Box of Ideas

Kids love making this mini-campfire!

Especially since they get to go outside to gather the materials to make it.

When I worked in the Arts and Crafts cabin of my favorite summer camp, we would do this craft with the youngest kids and it was always a successful activity since the kids had fun without being rushed and they could finish it in less than 50 mins.

(Video) Making a Mini Campfire

Here’s a quick Instagram video of how to make the cute campfire:

Like and share this video on Facebook! 🙂

How to Make the Mini-Campfire:

1. Cut out a cardboard circle (the size is up to you!)

2. Gather rocks and a couple of thin sticks (enough rocks to cover around the cardboard circle)

3. Glue the rocks around the circle, break the sticks into shorter pieces and place them in the rock circle’s center.

4. Cut squares of the color that you wish for your “flames” (I’ve seen rainbow campfires looking pretty good!)

5. Put them together and twist them to make a flame shape (like a crushed flower), or really, just rip them in random sizes and place them on top of the sticks (real flames don’t really have a shape so every kid can do it as ability hey can and it still looks good).

Voilá! you have a mini campfire!

Modern DIY Father’s Day Card Idea that Suits All Kinds of Dads (even single moms)

pin-diy-modern-fathers-day-card-for-diverse-kinds-of-dads-inclusive-idea-for-i-love-you-daddy-gift

Because not all Dads look the same.

I’ve seen many ideas for Father’s Day cards that are based on the traditional father figure, but in my opinion, these kinds of old school fathers are not what all kids are seeing in their homes today.

I thought it could be nice for those kids to give them the option to make a gift that resembles more the father figure that they see every day in their lives. Whatever that is (or isn’t).

I was raised by both my Mom and my Dad, so I can’t imagine how awkward it is for, let’s say, kids of single Moms that never see their Dad, to be encouraged at school to make a card that says “I love you Daddy” and features some kind of “cartoony mustache” or a men’s shirt with a tie.

This idea was designed to suit all kinds of different father figures that exist nowadays. No matter how diverse!

Let’s celebrate an inclusive Father’s day! 🙂

 

(Video) Modern Father’s Day Card

Here’s a super-speed video of only a couple of examples of the many different combinations that could be done with this idea:

Like and share this video on Facebook! 🙂

How to Make the Card:

1. Download the Free Printable from the link at the bottom of this page (it comes in English and Spanish)

The PDF has “adult and baby” illustrations of these animals: Seahorse, Lion, Bird, Cat, Turtle, Snake, Fish and Sheep.

2. Let the kids choose and cut out one Adult animal that for them feels more like their father figure, then let them choose and cut out two copies of the Kid animal that they feel could represent themselves.

* IMPORTANT * It doesn’t necessarily have to be the same kind of animal for the adult and the kid in the card. Adoptive parents and Dads that acquired parenthood by love and commitment are also legitimate father figures, even if they don’t physically look like their children.

3. Fold a sheet of paper in half and in the outside paste one copy of the baby animal. Then paste the adult animal and the other baby animal in the inside part of the card.

4. Add your own message or use the one included in the printable (available in Spanish and English).

Idea twists:

Extra customization: Add to the drawing any extra features that will make the animal look even more like your father figure. Freckles? Earring? a Tattoo maybe? (if someone did this for me, I bet they would add rabbit teeth and thick eyebrows to the animal, haha!)

Pop-up effect: To easily make any part of the drawing pop-up when the card is opened, do the following:

  1. Cut a small rectangle out of paper (about 10cm x 3cm should be fine).
  2. Bend it back and forward in a zig-zag shape, like a little accordion.
  3. Tape or glue one end of the accordion to the card. Then fold it and on the other end paste the part of the drawing that you want to stand out. That’s it!

(Video) Crafting Animals at High Speed

Here’s a video of my super-speedy hands making the examples for this game:

Instructions:

1. Download the Free Printable from the link at the bottom of this page (it comes in English and Spanish)

2. Complete each animal in a crafty way by playing with your creativity and any random materials that you find around.

Unleash your creativity!

Experiment with odd materials that don’t look like art supplies at all. That brings a richer experience for the player because it gives more satisfaction to them knowing they “discovered” a new way of using something. Who doesn’t love that feeling?

🐦💬 Everyone kept saying: “YOU WILL NEVER GET WINGS!” And for a long sad time, I believed them 😣 then one day it finally came to me… After binge-listening to success stories about feather-less birds that made it (like the naked bird you see if you SWIPE LEFT), I knew I had to find my own kind of wings no matter how unusual or “un-bird likely” they were. So I went into the recycling bin, I grabbed an old paper bag, cut it, painted it blue like my favourite kind of worms and LOOK AT ME NOW! I am the birdest bird in the bird land 💙😎 . . Has anyone ever told you that you are not good enough? What have you done about it? Comment to inspire others! . . . PS: I made this bird for @bestideasforkids

DIY Addition Machine – A fun way to learn addition

A nice teacher from Mexico sent me this video where he used the Animal Numbers to make an “addition Machine” (Máquina de sumar, in Spanish).

He used two painted toilet rolls and taped them to a shoe box.

Above each of the toilet rolls he placed one of the free number flash-cards to indicate how many pom-pons the student should introduce. Then the child only needs to count the total number of pom-pons in the box to know the answer.

Another teacher from a Facebook group commented that the machine could be improved by placing a “+” symbol between the flash-cards.


If you make anything with this free numbers printable, please consider sending me your video to be featured in my Facebook Page so other teachers can get inspired by your idea.

Romanian, German, Swedish and Catalan have also been mentioned as suitable languages for this alphabet by the multilingual parents community (though I can’t corroborate that 100%).

* Italian language notice: Certain letters are included that do not appear in the original / traditional / “purist” alphabet (J,K,W, X and Y). This is because with globalization and the importation of foreign words these words are now used by Italians. For example, ‘Jazz’ or ‘Kiwi’.

DIY Coloring Learning Game: Upper / Lower Case Vowels Match

Coloring learning activity for Preschool level kids- blank flash cards for upper case letters and lower case vowels. They can add their own drawings to the cards using words that are already familiar to them (like their family members’ names). Cut in half to make a puzzle or memory game :) To see more detailed ideas of games that you can do using this printable, visit: http://boxofideas.uk/vowels

<<

A fun coloring activity and game ideas to teach uppercase and lowercase vowels to preschool level kids.

Resources

Directions

01. Print a copy of printable A.

02. Ask your kid what is their favorite word with each vowel. You can help them by reminding them about the names of animals, cartoon characters, family members/friends that you already know that they like and that they are used to hear/say them often.

03. Ask the kid to draw and color a picture in each letter’s flashcard representing the words that they have chosen, trying to make the picture big enough so when you cut the cards in half there is enough “chunk” of their picture in both parts.

*IMPORTANT* Before the kid starts drawing the pictures, explain to them that after they finish making them, the cards will be cut in half so they can play with a puzzle that they’ve made themselves. Failing to do this might result in the kid resenting you for “destroying” their art without their permission and maybe they won’t even want to play anymore ☹️.

04. After your kid decides that the pictures are ready, cut them out of the page and then cut each in half.

05. Play matching those pics, which can be done in different ways depending on each child’s likes and skills, you can either:

  • Hide all the pieces around the room to make it a scavenger hunt / puzzle game.
  • Scramble all the pictures on the floor/table and let the kid find their own way to match them.
  • Put either the uppercase or lowercase parts in the right order (a-e-i-o-u) and let the kid find their match.

Game twists

  • Glue a magnet in the back of their designs so they can play on a metallic surface like the fridge.
  • Mount the pictures on cardboard and use them to play an alternative version of the classic memory game, where instead of looking to match two pictures of the same kind, they have to find the letter’s uppercase/lowercase match.
