One Hundred Toys

Your recycling box is a treasure trove. Egg boxes, cereal boxes, tubes, cake cases can all be used to create amazing things, from fancy dress costumes to pop-up castles. Junk modelling develops many skills, from connecting (with glue, tape, string) to planning and design. Children learn about the physical properties of materials, which ones will support a structure’s weight, and which won’t. 

You can also use junk in small world play. A lot of inner-packaging, especially the kind that comes with electrical products like mobile phones, has interesting shapes and indentations. These become ready-made structures for your figures to inhabit. While a junk model robot can become a character and used for imaginative play.
