The pagoda is a distinctly Asian type of architecture that often includes many tiers (or levels) and multiple eaves and rooftops on the buildings. Start with a basic structural drawing, or blue print, and encourage your child to engineer his own majestic marvel.
Be sure to use a picture of a pagoda you like as a point of reference along the way to keep your child inspired as he makes his own model.
Help your child to cut the cereal box down from the edges or corners, and open it until it is completely flat.
Have your child fold the top of each triangle shape at the top (the flat part) to create a tab.
Once dry, slide the box segment with the triangle eaves onto the top of the largest segment.
Erica Loop has a MS in Applied Developmental Psychology from the University of Pittsburgh's School of Education. A pagoda is a visually distinct type of tower common in the East, often used as Buddhist places of worship or spiritual practice. Step 1Place a 9-by-9-by-3-inch cardboard box on a stable surface to make the base of the pagoda tower. Step 3Cut a small diagonal slit from the corner of the square you drew to the corner of the cardboard sheet. Step 4Press your fingers into the line on the cardboard sheet and fold the cardboard upward along the line. Step 6Put glue along all four sides of the cardboard sheet's inner area, about 1 inch away from the folds.

Step 7Look at a picture of a pagoda you like and use it as inspiration to paint colors and designs on your cardboard pagoda. The pagoda is sturdy enough to support ornaments, jewels or other decorative items you enjoy.
Help your child to learn about the cultural significance of these impressive structures as he drafts and builds his very own mini-model. Use a ruler to make precise calculations as your pint-sized architect creates a scaled model from the ground up.
Have your child refold it back into a rectangle (an open box) shape, and tape it at the corners. The flaps that were either the bottom or top of the original cereal box should still be at the bottom of this segment. Each shape will have two diagonal line sides and a flat bottom like a triangle, but will also be flat at the top (it will look like a triangle that has been chopped off at the top). Measure progressively smaller cardboard sections, and created a tiered structure that is engineered to be beautiful in form and functional! She has many years of teaching experience working in early childhood education, and as an arts educator at the Carnegie Museum of Art in Pittsburgh. For these reasons, they are often referred to as "Chinese Pagodas" or "Asian Pagodas." Pagodas have multiple tiers, each one accented by by a horizontal eave, or structural layers that project beyond the walls of the square-shaped tower structure. Position 9-by-9 side of the box flat against the surface and 3-inch sides perpendicular to the surface. Then, grab the cardboard sheet and position it on top of the box, pressing down firmly to bond it to the glue.

Next, orient another cardboard box to match the base and press it firmly against the glue on the cardboard sheet. Keep this scale in mind when helping your child make all of his measurements and when creating all building components.
There should be two long shapes that are the same size and two shorter ones that are the same size. Tape or glue the sides together, and place the triangular pyramid on top of the structure as the main roof.
Pagodas are visually appealing and generally comprised of planar surfaces, making them a straightforward craft project to complete using cardboard. In this case, if you think the face of your pagoda should be 15 feet wide, then the face of your model should be 15 inches wide.

Cut on one of the lines halfway across to the middle (this is a great opportunity to talk about fractions!) to create a slit.
