What can you make out of a cardboard box? Use your imagination, and it can be anything! Since my son loves cars so much, I made a race car.The race car will facilitate dramatic play.Yay!
(You can make one too.You can do it by yourself, or have a little help from some friends!)

Supply List:

A sturdy cardboard box.

1. Wrap the box with paper.

3. Now it is time to add some details.(Optional)
4.I cut a flag out using constuction paper. I taped the flag to a paper
towel holder. I cut a hole in the box and put the holder through it.

5.Next, I cut a circle out of cardboard.Then, I added a piece of foam.This will be our steering wheel.
