DIY Pop-Up Paper Nativity Scene
Intelligent. Creative. Competent.
Discover the fun to craft with paper: Craft a farm, a nativity scene, a fire station, a hotel, or a railway station ... A Pappka® model offers almost unlimited possibilities. The model’s initial inconspicuousness soon proves to be a key advantage. It’s a challenge to transform the cardboard construction into your personal dream house and an opportunity to tap your creativity. Find your own way and colour the Pappka® model with drawing pencils or lightfast markers, acrylic paint or water-soluble crayons, pencils, or paints. Further decoration may comprise feathers, glitter stones, hay, moss, buttons and shells. You can turn each model into a setting and complement it with props such as toy cars, dolls, stuffed animals, etc. Invite all toy figures that have long-awaited to play a new role in the children’s room. Children’s creativity can fully unfold here. Besides, handicrafts playfully train fine motor skills. What’s more, by training their motor skills and mental creativity, the children – almost unawares – mobilize their brainpower.
They Know Their Pappenheimers and Their Crafting Skills. MuseKind®.
While it is not known whether the Pappenheimers (Germans literary great Fridrich Schiller refers to them in his play “Wallenstein’s death” and suggests that Wallenstein knows his troops well) were cardboard fans (“Pappen” are cardboards in German and “-heimer” refers to those living in houses made from that cardboard), it’s a given that the MuseKind® founders do love the versatile material. The Leipzig-based start-up MuseKind® came into the world when a design student came up with a fresh idea and met a designer and a marketing expert who wanted to bring new momentum to the toy industry. The founders Martina Musek (a designer of toys and educational games), Antje Stumpe (a graphic designer) and Cordula Hundrieser (a marketing specialist) know what they are doing. As a mother, each of them learned how quickly children discard a handicraft if the resulting object limits the options for creative (role) playing. MuseKind®’s products, therefore, are designed to offer fun beyond the crafting process. Without question, the Pappka® house meets the founders’ objective – and sustainably. Indeed, a Pappka® house has sustainable properties in both senses of the word. MuseKind® uses robust, high-quality cardboard for the playhouse and produces it resource-saving from raw materials from sustainable forestry. The Pappka® products are assembled in diaconal workshops in Leipzig. All other production steps, from printing to die-cutting to packaging (plastic-free, for sure), take place in Saxony as well, in regional proximity to each other.
