Cardboard Challenge: Makey Makey and Scratch Project by Kode Kiddo

June 26, 2020

It's the start of summer and if your kids are getting bored, you might try a little cardboard challenge to engage their creativity. (You need to do something with all those cardboard boxes piling up from online orders, right?)

Since 2012, kids have been inspired by Caine's Arcade and building amazing inventions out of trash! 

Here are some great tips published by the Greater Good Science Center at UC Berkeley when you are ready to challenge your kids to build something out of cardboard. 

Cardboard is one of our favorite invention materials here at Makey Makey. By using conductive tape with cardboard, you can build really amazing projects!

Check out this innovative build out of cardboard and foil that inspired this whole post! With this project by Kode Kiddo  you can build a car controller AND a bug exterminator.... all with recyclables and kitchen foil.

This project will definitely fuel your creativity!

The best part is that kodekiddosolo also made an Instructables too to help you create your own version of this! 

Happy Making!
