you will need


something to color with

a big box

lots of small boxes

and a medium size box

Step 1: How to Make a Fridge

you need to disassemble the medium size box(Get rid of ALL the tape). Tape the back side so it makes a box but you can open it. Then you put shelves and hold the shelves up with tape. Then if you want to you can put cardboard cutouts on the fridge as magnets.

Step 2: How to Make a Microwave

First get a small box, make a rectangular hole in the box. patch the hole in the box with tape so you can see though it. Cut the side of the box so it makes an opening. Tape the top of the box closed. Then add a keypad using your pen or marker.

Step 3: How to Make a Sink

First get a small box, cut off the top of the box. Use the small box as a stencil to cut the sink shape into the big box. Then put the sink into the hole you made. Then get a rectangle with a line through it, cut it until it's the right size for a faucet and then put it in between the sink and the big box. Then cut two circles, on one write hot or H and the other one write cold or C then tape the circles to the left and right of the faucet.

Step 4: How to Make a Dishwasher

Cut out a square of cardboard for the size of the dishwasher then you color the cardboard black, silver or any other color you would want for the dishwasher. Then trace out the square on to the big box, and cut it out. Then put the black carboard square into the hole then tape it so it can open and close then put a handle so it's easy to open. Then when you open it there is storage.

Step 5: How to Make a Stove

To make the stove you make a black circle with for lines going out of the circle on an unused section of your big box or "counter".

Step 6: How to Make an Oven

Get a square the size you want your oven to be. Make a hole in the big box by tracing the square and cutting the traced area out. Now put a hole in the square you made and then patch it up with tape. Now put the square with tape in the hole on the big box. Tape the square so it can open and close. Put a handle on it so it can open easier. When you open it there is a place for storage. Now you have a Cardboard Kitchen.
