paper bag city
Fill up the tank, let’s go for a drive! Kids can design a city with no gridlock or traffic jams—yesss! This budget-friendly DIY fuels a child’s creativity as they plan and draw out elements of their very own city.
What You’ll Need:
Melissa & Doug wooden vehicles & traffic signs
Draw pictures on paper bags of things you might find in a city. Create businesses, apartment buildings, bridges, whatever you want your city to look like. Tip: the top of each picture should be at the top of the bag.
Crumple up newspaper and slam dunk ‘em into the bags to fill them out.
Parent-only step: when the bags are full, staple across the top of each one.
Place the bags around the floor to create your cityscape. Break out your vehicles and street signs, it’s time to explore the city!
