What to do with an empty box and a creative child?
Grab your scissors, tape, a pile of old birthday cards, magazines and recycled bits and bobs and get creative…
My five year old and I made this diorama this morning.
Our starting point was his request to make a dragon.
And then we kept on adding different bits and pieces…
…until he decided it was finished.
Yes, it’s a bit surreal and doesn’t really make sense, but it was a lot of fun.
Have you ever made anything like this? Got any diorama top tips? Let me know in the comments below!

I would have to say of the dioramas I have seen, this is the most interesting and creative ones and I think the upside down eagle from the top is pure genius.
The only one I made as kid in school was using single serving cereal and other small boxes to make one of the main street in town, but it was fun.

Oh, thank you! It was fun to make, hopefully we’ll do some more. I never made any as a child.
