Summary: Children who have already had the opportunity to develop their skills with scissors, glue and brushes will enjoy putting these skills to use in junk sculpture constructions.

You will need to collect scrap materials such as cereal boxes, in fact cardboard boxes of all shapes and sizes, bottle lids, cardboard toilet paper rolls, pieces of string, paper – whatever you can find lying around ready to be thrown out.

Other materials:

  • PVA glue
  • Paint brushes
  • Paint
  • Colouring pencils/crayons
  • Masking tape
  • Scrap paper/newspaper to cover the table

Then sit back and watch your child come up with their own junk sculpture. Allow them to be as creative as they like, and offer them no help if their structure falls apart – this is a necessary step in the development of their problem solving skills.
