a cardboard box is fun

Share Wildflower Ramblings!

Sometimes, all the kid needs is a cardboard box.



Check out my cardboard box Pinterest page for a lot {more creative} ways to use a cardboard box for children.  I just couldn’t believe how long it took to duct-tape (notice the neon green?) the sides of this.  I don’t have enough patience to Exacto-knife a cute truck or something for my boy when I know it will be destroyed in about 3 minutes.  But this box has shown me that I don’t need to buy expensive things for my child — there are so many play items in the house, just waiting to be played with!!

I loved this post from Moving Smart about what a cardboard box can teach your child: spatial awareness, comfort & security, empowerment, control, sensorial, and imagination!

And check out my Pinterest board which includes 50+ ideas for using cardboard boxes!

Please share your cardboard box posts! I’d love to see them!
