Tissue Box Craft: Making a Carwash/ Gas station


This craft took my 3 year old son and I less than 10 minutes to complete and he had great fun playing with it.


Tissue Box, Glue, Scissors, Marker, Toilet Roll, Coloured Paper


1) Start with an empty Tissue Box and decorate the box or cover it with coloured paper

2) Cut a large rectangular hole at the front (car entrance)

3) Cut a small rectangular hole at the back (car exit)

4) Cut strips on a rectangular piece of paper, leaving about 1 inch at the top

5) Glue the un-cut (1 inch strip) paper inside the Tissue box

6) Stick the toilet roll to the side of the Tissue Box (filling petrol)

Finished product!
