Parents Who DIY
If you’re a parent and love DIY projects, please join my Facebook Group!
Our kids love to build things out of cardboard! Building crafts with cardboard is easy, fun, and usually very low cost, especially if you can get the cardboard for free.
Our kids are also homeschooled, and they enjoy school assignments that involve craft-building. We wanted to share our latest project with you: A cardboard box drone base!
This project is a great way for your kids to use their imagination and adds a new level of backyard fun. Be sure to watch my YouTube video below to see how we built it.
Tools and Supplies
Cardboard Box Drone Base
As you can see in my video above, glue is an essential component to this project. My Gorilla Glue gun and glue sticks really helps to make cardboard box projects like these very simple.
We found some free boxes of various sizes to use for this project. Before gluing, tear the four flaps off the top of the boxes so they can sit flush on the sheet of craft paper.
Gorilla Glue also sent us some of their newly released school glue for kids to try out, and it works just as I expected: Awesome. I constantly use Gorilla Glue in my shop for all sorts of projects. Now my kids use it like daddy during school, and they love it!
