Great way to play and create your very own car, truck or bus!


  • 1 empty packet wagon wheels (container)
  • 1 plastic fruit container
  • 2 googly eyes
  • 2 foam clouds
  • 1 pipe cleaner
  • glue
  • sticky tape
  • scissors


  1. Using your plastic fruit container glue 2 foam clouds to the top of it, then add 2 googly eyes to the foam clouds.
  2. Twist your pipe cleaner to make a mouth shape, twist double if needed. Glue your pipe cleaner to the fruit container underneath the eyes.
  3. Cut out 4 of the wagon wheel packet containers (as shown above in picture) and sticky tape them to the side of the fruit container where the wheels are supposed to go.
  4. Your monster truck is ready to go for an adventure!

    • It was actually fun for a 3 year old to make, she enjoyed it!


  • Very creative. I would never have thought of this.


  • Great idea. I love how creative you can get if you put your mind to it, just using household items and/or rubbish. Toilet rolls are great to make those hand-held streamers or a kaleidoscope. My son and I were huge fans of making things and had a whole plastic tub full of stuff. Lots of fun was had.


  • A very creative craft idea!


  • Wow, this is interesting. Very cool! (-:
