It’s true… all kids need is a cardboard box. Literally.
A few weeks ago, I got a large item for review and it came in a big cardboard shipping box. Suddenly inspired, I folded the flaps to the inside, stuck my son inside and handed him his crayon box. Genius!
He had a blast coloring all over the walls of his box, leaning over to color on the outside. Then he “drove” the box for awhile. He was so content in his box world!
The funny part? The item I received was defective and I had to ship it back for a replacement… I wonder what they thought about that colorfully scribbled box they received! Note to self: be sure you are keeping the item before coloring on the box!
I can imagine cardboard boxes are just going to get more fun for us as he explores pretend play, building forts, and more!
How else have you found cardboard boxes useful for kids’ playtime?
