Have you ever wanted to be larger than life? So have we! And we think the best way to do this is as a robot. Sourcing materials around you is easier than ever anticipated in this climate of consumption and should you need any larger boxes than you can find in your home, a trip down to your local supermarket will fix all your problems!

A fabulous maker in Spain that goes by the name of Monsieur Voyage created a robot costume at the beach with his kids using makedo and we want you to have as much fun as they did (which is quite a bit).

What you need?
Two large boxes
Three medium boxes
makedo
Freeplay Kit

Step 1: Connect the two large boxes together for the body

Step 2: Cut up medium box to add some robot embellishments

Step 3: Attach a medium box to the body and cut out circles for eyes to fit in rolled up, cut cardboard scraps.

Step 4: Use a medium box to create triangular legs and cut out holes in the body for arms to go through. From a medium box, use flat pieces of cardboard with decorative holes cut out to give shape and added embellishment to the robot.

Step 5: Play!
