What is most fun is the fact that this cardboard box house is an art project made of salvaged cardboard boxes (free) and old food boxes from cereal and crackers. Other than that it is just paint and glue!
Special thanks to Laura Ayars and her boys for this project.
*This project definitely needs adult supervision. Recommended for age 10 and above.

Materials: canvas, tracing paper, pencil, eraser, acrylic paints, paint brushes (narrow, medium and large), plate for paint, water and a picture from a children’s book.*
I recommend wearing an apron when using acrylics as they change from liquid to a plastic. You can only get it out of clothing if you scrub it off right away.
First I painted the whole canvas white.
I used the tracing paper to copy the picture, scribbled with pencil on the back and then used that to transfer the picture to my canvas.
Use tracing paper to move the illustration from a book or screen to your canvas for this art project. I added extra water to the acrylic paint for the background colors.
A wash of acrylic with extra water makes a soft background for any art project. Then working from light colors to darker colors, I began painting.
YUM! This fish sandwich is delicious! Project is suitable for 5th grade and up.
