Someone was trying to find out how to best build a cardboard ship, and Kidology member Super Dave posted a website for Mr. McGroovy’s Box Rivets.
When I went to the site, the first word out of my mouth was, “Cool!” This company makes plastic rivets to connect cardboard boxes easily to make many different items. They have kits to make a castle and a pirate ship that come with all the rivets you need and a box cutter. All you need is the cardboard boxes! The site also has tips on how to get boxes for free as well as tips on how to paint cardboard. There are also plans on how to build other items as well as a photo gallery of what customers have built.
If you want to make some fun, easy and inexpensive props, this is definitely one way to do it. Check out Mr. McGroovy’s Box Rivets and then come back and tell me what you think.
