Materials

Tip: Look around your house for a box that you can reuse for this craft. Any box with a flat lid will work. If you don't have red craft foam, you can substitute the red paper cross that is part of the first aid kit template.

Directions

  1. Step 1

    Print the Diego Printable Template and help your kids cut out the character image and the red cross.

  2. Step 2

    Glue the character image to the top of the box, just left of the center.

  3. Step 3

    Trace the red cross template onto red craft foam and cut out the shape. (If you do not have red craft foam, you can simply use the paper template.)

  4. Step 4

    Glue the foam (or paper) cross over the character's body allowing their face to appear.

  5. Step 5

    To create two hinges at the back of the box, snip two 1 1/2-inch lengths of red electrical tape. Apply them vertically so that the top now hinges to the base of the box.

  6. Step 6

    Run the red electrical tape around the lower edge of the lid to create a decorative trim.
