Tardis Paper Model – Kids Craft

My kids and I loves to keep ourselves busy into paper model craft. Since we are fans of Dr. Who series, I found a nice free printable to build it. Little G made 2 different version of Tardis model paper models and I helped Little V in making the big blue Tardis for his own. I made the pink Tardis for myself. Smiles.
