Arts & Crafts #1: Pizza Box Art (ages 6 & up)

Posted on July 17, 2013 by Anna-Carin Hart

The "pizza box" that your bag arrived in is made from recycled materials.  You can recycle it further by using it to make fun arts & crafts to put into your Anna Hart covers.


You can get as extravagant as you want, but you can also keep it simple, especially if you are doing arts & crafts with a child.  This project is suited for children aged six and up.  The materials my seven year old daughter, Zoe, used were: scissors, glue stick, glitter, stickers, newspaper (or paper towels) and a coffee cup for tracing.  I helped her with the box cutter, but she did everything else herself.


Use the coffee cup to trace a circle on the pizza box.  Make sure the base of the coffee cup is small enough to fit into the pocket of the Anna Hart cover.  Use the box cutter to cut out the rough shape and then use the scissors to clean the edges. Cover the circle with a generous amount of glue and place on newspaper or paper towel.  Sprinkle the glitter onto the circle and then shake off the excess.


Put extra glue on the back of a sticker and place in the middle of the circle, pressing firmly on the sticker for a few seconds or you can place wax paper and a heavy book on top.  Allow to dry for an hour and then shake off excess glitter.  


Place in your Anna Hart plastic cover to enjoy your unique design.


You can expand on this project by using cookie cutter shapes or alphabet cut-outs.  Try other materials like beads or colorful pipe cleaners, markers and paint.  In order to protect your Anna Hart cover, you can also laminate your designs.
