dinosaur party. As you can imagine, these were also a bit hit with the preschool set. To make these dinosaurs, I found some pictures in childrens books to use as a guide. I then sketched, cut out and painted with acrylic paint.
For my daughters horse party, I used cardboard boxes to make a corral. Originally it was going to be set up outside and go all around the horse, but it ended up being too windy that day. You can see part of the corral in the background.
Last summer we had a Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs Party, which gave me many oppurtunites to use recycled cardboard. In the first picture I used cardboard tubes painted yellow for a bowl of large macaroni pasta. I used small piece of foam board, cardstock and fiberfill to make the oreo. In the second picture, the girls carry a giant french fry made from a long box painted yellow. In the last picture, the falling pizza was made from cardboard food boxes, recycled kraft paper and cardstock scraps.
With a little bit of creativity, almost any box or large piece of cardboard can be made into some sort of party prop.
