Homemade Dr Who Tardis for Imaginative Play

Tardis in the Universe

This Tardis was made out of a large box by my clever daughter and I during the summer break. Any Dr. Who fans out there? FYI, I used a photo from this site as the background of this picture: http://hubblesite.org/the_telescope/.

I used a box cutter to cut the panels out of the front doors and then we worked together to glue another piece of cardboard onto each door (on the inside). Basically the doors are twice as thick. This detail looks cool but isn’t necessary. My daughter painted the Tardis and cut the “window panes” from paper and glued them on the box. She also did all the clever workings inside. (Lots of knobs and levers!)

I love the way it sparks imaginative play.

Tardis In The Making

The window panes on this Tardis measure 5.5 inches x 3.75 inches. (You will need 12.)

The sign on the door I was able to find on the web and print out.

Here is The Police Public Call Box sign that we used on our Tardis. I made it/ sized it to print out easily on a standard piece of paper. Print out, cut out, glue on.
