If you have been reading our blog, you know we love recycle toy ad ons.  It makes for more creative play and adds an element of ingenuity and engineering to every project.  In the past, we designed a Playhouse modelled after a doll house, as well as a campground using Legos, Playmobile and other small toys.
The Greenville project was a natural to follow! So here is what we did:
We took the same boxes from our playhouse and reconstructed them as well as added others to make a city scene. Obviously, utilizing what toys we already have.
The city includes a supermarket, furniture store, cafe, fruit stand, flea market, animal petting area, zoo, walkways, sitting areas, ice cream wagon and more.
We used recycle materials such as bottle caps, candy containers, pizza inserts, food boxes and cardboard tubes to make shelves, buildings and accessories.  All mixed with our collection of playmobile and other small toys.  Lastly, we made signs from the back side of food boxes, paper rolls and paper.
The boys ages range from 5 to 9. Each one brought their excitement, creativity and expertise to the table!
