DIY toy garage from paper rolls and cardboard – part 1

We start with news from the construction site. For our car fans we prepare something that will allow them to find a moment of madness in the long winter evenings, and will allow us to breathe a little. It will be a garage. Sizable toy made from recycled materials. Because, why not?

Toys recycled are cool because they are special. Really unique. They are not always even look like the original plans, and the more like another toy from the supermarket. Therefore, in spite of adversity, from time to time, we will create something out of recycled repertoire, inviting you to play with.

Our garage for cars is no joke. At least for us. The project is considerable and, I must admit, a little too time-consuming. One day, however, it will complete, and at this stage the children quiet (or rather wildly), can play in racing.

We started the project from the idea. We gathered all kinds of materials that can be useful to make the garage, and matching gathered elements together.
