A few weeks ago I came up with this alien collection box project.  To be honest, I thought it was a dud.  I didn’t think the kids would go for it at all.  Well, was I wrong!  They found it in my things and couldn’t wait to make it.  I’m talking totally engaged for half the morning.  Kids never cease to amaze.  Here are some of their collection boxes.  It’s a little hard to tell from the photos, but basically, it’s a box with an accordion folded paper glued in.  The kids drew aliens and other things on the panels of the accordion.
