Another creation by Family Kiosk. It is simple: take a tea box, cover it with paper and imagine  the face of your personal monster.
Our boxed monster guards kids' treasures. What will your monster guard?) Surely, you will think of something)

Cardboard Puppet Theater

We decided to do a puppet theater. Our boys love reading books. So, why not сhange things up a bit and start to show favorite tales on the stage?!). We used a cardboard box, cut it up, covered it with paper, added some stencils and I made a pair of curtains from old t-shirt. Then think about puppets. You can sew or cut up from cardboard puppets from your favorite fairytales and then start the show!

My friend made this cardboard puppets from the famous Russian fairytale "The speckled hen."

Once upon a time there were an old man and an old woman.
They had a speckled hen.
The speckled hen laid an egg.
The egg was not ordinary, but golden.
The old man beat, beat, but he didn’t break it.
The old woman beat, beat, but she didn’t break it too.
A mouse ran and waved with a tail.
The egg fell down and was cracked.
The old man and the old woman cry.
А speckled hen clucks.
The old man! Don’t cry!
The old woman! Don’t cry!
I will lay another egg for you, not golden – but ordinary. 

And also we bought puppets from IKEA

 K really likes his shark)

This is remarkably simple project.  A three year old child can do this project.  I made these candies with my eldest son ( he is 3),  and he really likes the process in general.
Some of candies we gave away as presents, while some of them we used to decorate our Christmas tree, and part of them we leave just for playing)

What you need:

Cardboard rolls (from toilet paper or similar)
Wrapping paper
Yarn or twine

Infant soft toy D.I.Y

 Finally I got around to doing it)
Of course, my boys are already grown too old for such toys. This will be a gift)

The toy fixes to the baby bed. The baby can play laying and also sitting ( when he/she can sit by him/herself). Inside every part I put small bells , that is why this toy will make sounds when moved or touched.
