gold rush art project

Love it when old rolls of corrugated cardboard turn out to make the perfect cover for a wagon. Best of all, the curve is already built in.

 

MATERIALS

• Corrugated cardboard
• Corrugated cardboard roll
• Wooden skewers
• Template for 2″ circle wheels
• Adult scissors
• Masking tape
• Craft glue

DIRECTIONS

PREP: Use a paper cutter to cut cardboard rectangles to make a 3″ x 5.5″ wide wagon, that is 2″ tall.

  1. Tape the wagon pieces together so they lie flat with masking tape.
  2. Bring the sides up and tape lightly from the outside. Glue the insides edges together with craft glue. Let dry.
  3. Trace four circles and cut with scissors.
  4. Punch wooden skewers through 2″ circles. Adjust to match width of wagon and tape from below.
  5. Cut a 5″ wide panel to make the cover, and insert inside. Glue if desired.
  6. Remove outside tape when dry.
