Also known as cereal boxes in action.
An exciting project for grandparents, parents, teachers at play schools, kindergartens and grade schools and for dads who make models of all kinds and especially dads involved in model railroading.
And of course, kids.
Tiny Towns is a collection of 20 houses that can be built on paper, cereal boxes or old file folders.
You build Tiny Towns the fun way. It can be built as individual houses, creatively assembled towns, Christmas villages, dioramas and as many ways as the kids come up with ideas.
You start by using the plans is a template. You can print as many copies of the templates as you wish.
Either just print them on paper, as thick as your printer will allow, or print them on thin paper and glued them to a cereal box or other card. Then cut them out.
Now the fun begins.
Color them. Decorate them. Add extra doors or windows.
When you are satisfied, glue them together.
Now take a piece of cardboard and put the houses on the cardboard.
Draw a road. Color the road.
Use some spices, such as basil, glued to the cardboard as grass.
Use cotton to make trees and bushes. Once again use spices for leaves.
Along with Tiny Towns comes a booklet with ideas, instructions, and creative ways to make your dioramas or displays.
And remember once you finish one town you can start another one. Just print the templates again and give it another go.
Tiny Towns is great for schools. You only need one package and you can use it from class to class, day-to-day, and year to year. Save the original and print the templates as many as you wish and as many times as you wish.
Tiny towns is only $4.95 for the complete package.
It comes to you in PDF file format. For your convenience ,each building is on its own file.
The buildings are in 1/50 scale. This is a manageable scale for small hands. If you wish to build in a smaller scale, it is a simple matter or changing your printer settings. Instructions are include.
