DIY robot from recycled materials - perfect rainy day kids craft!

Today’s robot project will keep your minds and hands occupied. It’s super easy and uses materials readily available at home!



Line your tissue rolls and carton with foil paper. (You don’t have to use glue to stick it down)

Stick two tissue rolls on one end of the carton and another at the middle of the other end. (This should be our legs and head respectively)

Cut out two strips of paper from the red cardstock. Make an accordion fold for both of them. (Accordion folds are just mountain and valley folds that create a bumpy pattern)

Stick these two strips of paper onto the sides of the carton.

Now that we’re done with the other parts, let’s move on to our facial features! Glue two buttons on the tissue roll at the top and cut out a small ziggy shape from the red paper. Stick this strip below the two buttons.

Cool right!?  Place it on your desk as part of your decor or just to scare away nosy people. (keep an eye on your stuff and all)
