Play with art at home: mini houses with figures

You probably have old cardboard boxes, cores of paper rolls and empty milk and egg cartons at home. Artist Jennie Bringaker will show us how we can use these discarded materials to make mini cardboard houses and furniture.

You need: 

  • Cardboard! Cartons, matches, cardboard boxes or whatever you may find
  • Tape or glue
  • Scissors or a wallpaper knife (get help from an adult!)
  • Paint and brushes

Play with art at home is a series of video workshops for children where we show you how to use items you have at home for arts and crafts. We meet artists who pass on their tricks on how to play with different art forms.
