How To Make It
  • 1

    Paint a cactus on a piece of cardboard. The back of a cereal box will do. This piece of cardboard was recycled from the Infinity packaging—it's a game that kept on giving.

    You can also use markers if you don't have paint on hand.

    Once the paint is dry, cut everything out.

  • 3

    You can create other pieces, too. Try varying the heights of the pieces to give the set more dimension.

  • 4

    Now take a paperclip. Bend the inner arch out to a 90-degree angle. Tape it to the back of your pieces. If you have a long piece, use multiple paperclips.

    Now, set up your scene and play! Create an original story with the figurines or have them act out a scene from one of your favorite films. You could even use this as a backdrop for stop animation videos featuring your favorite characters. The possibilities are endless.

Notes
Cutting should be done by an adult.
