If you're a tween and you've found 12:34, you're looking for something a little different than what many kid craft sites have to offer; toilet paper roll crafts might not seem as cool as they once did and perhaps you're looking to try your hand at something with a little more style. At 12:34, we hope to bridge the gap between projects for little kids and projects geared towards teenagers and adults. We try our hand at art, crafting, stamping - if we think it's cool - we'll try it. Thanks for dropping by! N&K

2D Street




Using the tops of pizza boxes and cut up cardboard boxes we will be creating individual buildings.
Another way of thinking of this project is like theater set design only you're designing to a miniature scale to be enjoyed by stuffed animals and figurines.

You will need:
Cardboard in various sizes
Acrylic Paints (we recommend using a minimum of 3 colors or more per building)
Paintbrushes
Water cup with clean water
Paint shirt for your kidlet and maybe even you!

Now you simply paint a base color onto the cardboard. Then draw in windows and doors, trims and street numbers, roofs and railings. Paint as desired!

The wonder of this project is really when the kids surround themselves with a town of their making. With buildings they painted and windows filled with things they love, their imagination will really take flight as they interact and use their new town in their play.
