  • Marabu KiDS paint is perfect for lots more craft techniques too, such as potato prints, stamp prints and marbling.

How it is done:

  • First, a basic camera is created using shipping boxes. An adult should help here and sketch out the individual side parts on the box. The kids can help to cut out the parts and stick them together. The flash is also created from shipping boxes, the lens is created from a shortened toilet roll, which is attached to the basic shape.
  • Once the glue has dried, you can decorate the camera however you want using the paints. Using the tape, you can seal off individual areas of the camera to achieve a defined colour border when you are finished.
  • When the paint has fully dried, the strap can also be attached using the craft adhesive.
