These recycled cardboard toys from Mr. Printables are adorable and inexpensive to make. Its ‘Cardboard Winter Wonderland’ playtoy set consists of a ton of charming animals that live in cold climates like moose, deer, polar bears and husky dogs. There are also a few other pieces to the set, like sleighs and snow-capped evergreen trees.
The entire set of templates can be downloaded from its site, traced onto cardboard, cut out and played with. These simple templates are a great starting off point for kids who really want to get creative with their own decorations. Mr. Printables’ example playset comes to life with the addition of colorful dolls made from clothes pegs and just a little paint.
