Craft- Cardboard Box TV

The kids enjoyed reading the book so much that they decided to make their own cardboard box tv. It featured a French channel where they spoke the little French they have been learning. It was very entertaining, and gave me a few good (and much needed) laughs!


To make your own cardboard box t.v., all you need is a large cardboard box, some crayons/markers and box cutter or scissors.  Because my kids are used to making things with their hands, I basically handed them the box, and went to cook dinner.  By the time I was done with dinner, the “tv” had already been made.  I was so impressed with all the details they drew including all the gadgets that was underneath the t.v.  After dinner, I relaxed on the couch with some munchies, while the kids provided the entertainment on their newly made “t.v.” Alhamdulillah, it ended up to be a fun craft for both parties 🙂

This is an especially great activity to do with kids who you may be trying to steer away from watching t.v. Ironically, it gets them off the tube, by getting them in the tube (lol). 

Note: If your kids are not able to cut the cardboard box by themselves, you can cut it out for them, and have them decorate it. The best part of the activity, is they will get to use their imagination when they “perform” on their t.v.

Please share any cardboard box projects your kids have made. I would love to suggest them to mine inshaa allah.
