      Hi Anita,

      What if you used those little gold paper fasteners between each of the cartons? You would have to use an awl or something pointed to start a pilot hole for the fastener and may require more than one on the larger boxes but it may be a bit more reliable than tape and not require drying time like glue.

      If you could do it prior to the kids decorating the boxes (which would be way easier on you  :-) ) it would save some hassle.  Perhaps the kids or their parents could do the holes at home?

      Just a thought, brainstorming as I type...:)

      Good luck with the project..sounds fun!

      Lori

      You might try a hot glue gun. If supervised by an adult. Or string/pipe cleaners might work best. Sent from my iPhone

        To join two pieces of light cardboard, why not cut a strip of paper (nice and straight), fold in half so it makes a right angle, and glue one side to one
