On a quite Sunday afternoon my 4 year old son who is currently obsessed with Zelda BOW asked if we could build a Guardian.

In his mind I think this was going to be 10 foot high with lazers that could shoot....but with only 3 boxes and a Make.do toolkit this is what we came up with.

This has been a very popular product with schools and libraries using it to spark children (and grown-ups) imagination. Each piece of cardboard can be cut with the saw and then screwed together. My son was able to punch a hole and join up the various bits of cardboard for the legs.

We found a used-up dymo label roll to use as the eye and he then decorated it with a thick marker.

It lived upstairs for a few weeks....but then the real trick is what to do with a Guardian once he is made.....he might slowly get his 'ancient' screws borrowed for other projects.
