Ah, nothing holds more creative possibilities than an empty cardboard box. Come on, that’s not really a box. Sure, it is a shipping parcel, but it can be so much more. It’s a fort, a rocket ship, an artistic outlet, a musical instrument, there is so much more beyond those cardboard boxes sitting in your mud-room, that paper towel roll, that tissue box! Before you toss it in your recycling bin, try re-purposing it! Children will love imagining all the possibilities of what to create with the versatile compound!
#1 – Rocket Ship
Junior space cadets are sure to love this adorably re-purposed cardboard box! If you have a few boxes, one of large size, and one of a slightly smaller size, have the kids work on decorating the smaller one (the top of the ship), and you can cut an opening for the little ones to crawl inside!
