How to Make Toy Movie Box Craft for Kids on Rainy Day

Crafts Materials Needed:

*Shoe-box

*Comic book (or old magazine)

*Scissors

*Paper

*Paste (or Scotch tape)

*Scissor

Directions for Making the Movie / TV Show Box:

You can make movies out of your comic books and have loads of fun showing them in this Peep-hole Movie Theater.

Step 1









Take the bottom part of a shoe-box. Cut a slit about 1/4 of an inch wide across the bottom of the box, as shown by the colored lines in the picture above. Be sure that the slit is a little shorter than the full width of the box. Then draw two diagonal lines across the other end of the box, as shown by the dotted black lines. Using your scissor, make a peep-hole about 1/2 an inch wide at the point where these dotted black lines cross. This is shown as the solid colored blue spot above.

Step 2







Take the lid of the shoe-box and cut a slit in it directly above the slit in the bottom of the box, as shown by the colored lines in the picture above. Draw three lines, as shown by the colored dotted lines. Cut through the box with your scissor along these lines, to form a skylight.

Step 3

To make a film, cut paper into strips a little narrower than the slits of your movie box. Then paste these strips together to make a film about 36 inches long. Cut out pictures from your comic book, one by one, and paste them on the film paper with paste or Scotch tape.

Step 4







The picture above shows how you slide the end of the film through the slit in the lid and down through the slit in the bottom of the box. Cut the end of the film to a point, as shown above. That will make it easy for the film to slide through the slits. Be sure to raise the skylight when you are showing the movies so that light is thrown on the pictures. Bend up the skylight along the black dotted lines shown above.
Of course you don’t have to show comic book movies. You can paste any sort of pictures on your film, like movie stars, baseball players, etc. Colored pictures look better than black and white pictures, but they all look wonderful through that peep-hole.
