Artist and designer Joel Henrique´s D.I.Y. blog  Made by Joel is a wonderful inspiration to everyone with kids. Joel Henriques is the father of twins and seems to generate new creative ideas from looking at objects with a childs curiosity. Everyday objects are reborn as toys or decorative elements. On his blog he describes how to create everything from tiny wallnut boats to dollhouses and playing cards.

Here some empty cerial boxes were transformed into this marble run:

This blog is so inspiring and made me look at empty tins and plastic boxes with curiosity,  I have begun washing and storing them so I can reuse them and build paper cities, velcro dolls and cardboard mobiles. For more information and great ideas visit the blog Made by Joel or his website Joel Henriques Art.
