Stand a small box, such as a shoebox, on its side. If you wish, cut out the top to make an open scene. To make terraces for your cornfield, fold cereal box cardboard back and forth like a staircase. Use Crayola® Scissors to cut it to fit inside the box. Glue the field in place with Crayola School Glue.
With Crayola Gel Markers and Twistable Crayons, color the background inside the box. You might make a mountain with sun and clouds. For a 3-D effect, such as trees, draw items on recycled file folders, cut them out, and glue inside the box.
