The other day, my children were watching Mr Maker. If you’ve never seen it, it’s basically a dude who goes to various places and makes different crafty things within a one minute time limit (I think it is one minute). I am sure that he is delightful, and his job is my idea of hell, but it does mean that my son now wants to actually make the stuff featured.
We usually don’t have any of the stuff Mr Maker uses to make the things (brown paint? stick-on circles? ha, ha, ha) but some of the things can be made with a cardboard box, kitchen foil and pritt stick.
My husband ended up making this boat with my son and I think they were both really pleased with it.
