This 770 model was made from almond milk cartons, egg cartons and cardboard! The only tricky part I'd recommend skipping was the rounded window. To start cut out an egg carton into bricks. If you make them all the same size yours will look even better! My daughter wanted to do this step herself. When you paint it, try to paint just the bricks and leave the spaces between the bricks unpainted for more of a realistic touch. The roof was made by cutting cardboard like in the pic
Ok! So this project was a bit more complex and you probably need some crafting skills to put it together, but I'm sure taking these ideas you can simplify it if needed. I bought the materials in the picture below but didn't end up using everything. I used styrofoam bricks from a company called Creatology but Amazon sells something similar. The styrofoam bricks were glued together with school glue. Kids can do that part with some help for placement. I used the dollar-store woo

I used a pink acrylic marker to trace around the oval on a crystal clear Shrinky Dink sheet or use a No. 6 plastic sheet. 2. Make little white circles using a white acrylic marker all around the border. 3. Next, I added another ring of circl

They come in two main varieties, crystal clear and frosted. Frosted are great for kids to use because the children can color on them with regular markers and pencil crayons.
