DIY Milk Carton Cities

Alec’s nursery school is starting a project this term focusing on “Our City”.

I love this idea. I think it’s wonderful to really embrace the urban lifestyle that these kids have and help them to appreciate their city and all that it has to offer.

The project will include all sorts of field trips and activities. When I was poking around Pinterest recently I came across some really fun DIY milk carton and shoe box cities that I’m going to share with Alec’s teachers:

This exhibit is made of shoe boxes.

How fun is this? Make your own village from milk cartons and old packaging. Great DIY project for summer!

Milk cartons

These pins were the first ones I found. I love the black and white city!

milk carton skid row. Already have a massive collection of boxes for a cardboard city

This is a milk carton “skid row”. With lights. Lovely!

This village is so sweet. The houses were used as Valentines mail boxes.

Here is a good how-to for making milk carton houses with roofs – there are even downloadable details (doors, windows, roof tiles etc) to decorate with.
