We received this book yesterday and straight away my daughters wanted to make something from it. We started on the simpler side and made the owls. The instructions were really easy to follow and they were fun to make. The materials you need are all things that you would have in the house. We are planning on making the puppet theatre at the weekend and my girls are very excited! My eight year old daughter loved the book so much that she wants to buy a copy for her friend's upcoming birthday.

Both My children enjoy making things, so this was right up their street and they couldn't wait to see what they could make from the book. I liked that was a variety of things to make and you could find what you wanted from the contents page. The instructions were clear and precise and really liked that it had pictures showing what you needed to do, so it was easy to follow the instructions.There were things to make to suit both my children, as I have a son and daughter who aren't close in age so it was good that they could both make things. My son liked that he could make things on his own, just following the instructions from the book. My son actually had a puppet project at school and we made the cardboard theatre from the book, so it came in really handy. My daughter really enjoyed making the balancing butterflies. There was nothing too complicated to make, and we are going to be trying out some more things next time they are off school. A big thumbs up for this book

My daughter loves DK books - her favourite is 365 Things to Do with LEGO Bricks. She spends every single day building lego creatures:) Now she is hooked on Out of the Box! This beautifully designed book brings a big smile to your face. The whole family can enjoy spending time on building and decorating amazing things using recycle household cardboards. The materials required for creations we all have at home! Each craft has a clear instructions and illustrations. They are sitting now making Lazy Lizards!

This is a truly inspiring craft book and simple to understand for all ages. I would defenitely recommend it!!!

A terrific book. Nothing that we make will ever look as good as the book, but amazingly it's not too far off! That's because the instructions are clear, well designed and the models are not too difficult. Each of the designs in the book are engaging and interesting. I think this book will keep us busy for many a rainy day to come!

I was soooo excited when I saw I had won this book (I mean the children of course!)..... I couldn't wait to get started on some of the projects in the book so when it arrived I was straight in there planning a weekends worth of stuff to do with the girls!

The first one the girls wanted to try was the tropical aquarium. We set to with scissors and old egg boxes and whilst I did the trickier bits the girls drew and painted their fish to hang in. It's great because it's something you can do with the whole family! Even daddy joined in. They are now using it as a 'fish show' and giving the fish names and things to say.

I have planned to make the castle this weekend and have also ear marked some projects to take into school to do a craft club with. 

It's a great book with lots of variety and easily laid out into numbered stages. This made it easier for the girls to work with as they could do it stage by stage. It also give you a picture of what the finished item should look like so you have something to work towards!

A great book which will have an extremely long shelf life in this household.

Thank you so much. I was thrilled to recieve this book. As a mother and also a beaver scout leader this book will be very useful and will give me lots of craft ideas.  I have already started collecting cardboard boxes to make robots with my 24 Beavers and my daughter has made a few owls with loo roll inserts. Easy to follow instructions too. I would recommend this book!

I really like this book, it's good fun.  I've made a few of the designs too.  The penguins are quite hard to cut but they look really good all painted up and I like the lazy lizards and the dragons too.

We are saving up the cardboard so we can make the town in the Easter holidays.
