Cardboard Laptop

We love to reuse cardboards and make them a learning tool. In this activity we made a laptop for toddlers/kids. It can be used to learn so many things like letter recognition, learning the alphabet, uppercase/lowercase matching, typing on the keyboard and more! There are so many fun ways to play pretend with this cardboard computer so have fun!


  • Easy



  1. Start off by cutting the cardboard. It should have the shape of a laptop.

  2. Place the magnet tape on the pretend screen.

  3. Tape black paper on top.

  4. Tape paper on the keyboard part and write the letters or use a label machine.

  5. You can also use a string to keep the laptop open at an angle.

  6. Laptop is ready to go! You can review pictures below.
