Make a fun toy camera for your kids! Simple to create and tons to fun for your little ones to play with and build their imagination. This DIY toy is sure to beat your children’s boredom blues!
What you’ll need:
Markers, crayons, paints, etc

Paint your cardboard box. For a fun touch, paint the bottom strip a different color then the rest of the box
