Save your next carton for this fun activity. It keeps my 1yr old, 3 yr old and 4 yr old busy. I really can't explain why but it does work and is a must try. All you need is a carton like this and craft sticks. It's best suited for younger toddlers but the older ones enjoy it too.
This mailing tube makes a great sound toy. We filled ours with corn and covered with fun Duck Tape colors.
Kids love cardboard boxes. Next time you are about to throw one away, think about something fun you can make out of it. Here are a few ideas on cardboard fun!
For Thanks Giving, we wanted to have a unique playdate that had a different theme than making a turkey or leaves. I invited our friends to come sail the Mayflower at our house. As a craft activity, we had them make binoculars so they can spot Plymouth rock. This construction took 7 rolls of duck tape, 7 large boxes and 21 hours. A bit over the top but an amazing playdate!
For class, I built the kids a castle out of cardboard. This only took an hour. The kids played with the castle for an hour.
