KidCREATIVE is a system of tools for creating anything that you can imagine.
Hey! I’m Pip and I’m here to show you around!
INSIDE YOUR BOX
HAMMER & PUNCH
HAMMER & PUNCH
The hammer and punch are the tools you can use to make holes in your cardboard. Put the metal end of the punch against the cardboard and use the hammer to make the hole! Just be careful to not use them on anything except cardboard!
Gromits are super useful! They can be used to attach two pieces of cardboard together. Just punch a hole through both pieces, then push the gromit into the hole!
Clamps are also used to put two pieces of cardboard together, but they only attach at the sides. Clamps can also be used to put the round end into the gromits and make a connection!
Elbows are cool because they make angles hold their position. An elbow can be inserted into a gromit. If you have an elbow to hold your pieces, they wonâ€™t come apart by themselves.
Using this method, you can bend cardboard into any shape you want! You can make boxes with right angles, or any kind of angle you want, the possibilities are infinite!
Use the ruler to make sure the bend stays on the line.
Use a ruler to draw the line you want to bend.
Slots are useful for making all kinds of things. They can be used for making support inside of something BIG or for when you need things to intersect.
Make sure you do this on two different pieces!
Cut out a slot where you drew the line, but only halfway down!
Fit the two pieces together, and it looks like this
Use a ruler to draw the line for the slot.
Use a ruler to draw the lines for the tab.
Cut out a tab on one piece and a slot on the other.
The pieces should look something like this.
Fit the pieces together like this.
Tabs are useful for connecting pieces together that donâ€™t need to hold anything up. They can be used for covering up holes or just generally attaching two pieces together.
These are my friends! Buki
Use scissors and cut all the solid lines.
Make a mountain fold on all the dotted lines.
Glue or tape the tabs in place to form your car! You can even color it to make it your own!
Make a valley fold on all the dashed lines.
Draw two diagonal lines, like the ones shown.
Use a ruler to draw two more lines.
Cut along the diagonal lines.
Your glider should look like this so far.
Use the ruler to fold your glider in half along the center line.
The lines should look like this.
Use the punch to make a hole in the body and a hole in the wing.
Use a ruler to draw two lines.
Fold the wings like this. Insert gromits into the holes and use elbows to keep the wings in the right place.
You can also make your glider special with colors and other decorations!
YOUâ€™RE READY TO FLY!
Put a clamp on the nose of the plane to hold it together.
First, youâ€™ll want to make your ammo, which are lava rocks! Crumple up newspaper to make these. Next you want to make stepping stones. These can be made out of cardboard and can be any shape you want! I love this game!
For beginners, there can be more stepping stones and they can be bigger. For experts, make the steps smaller and have fewer of them. The shapes to the right are examples of stepping stones!
The rules are simple. Each player starts at opposite ends of the playing arena with 3 lava rocksz. The floor is lava, so donâ€™t touch it! If you touch the lava, it counts as 1 hit. Your mission is to hit your opponent 3 times with lava rocks before you get hit. The game can be played 1 on 1 or with teams.
Before this game can be played, you have to make a few things!
