Save those shipping boxes for creative fun! Many people do their shopping online these days and with that comes boxes stacked up by the door. Instead of recycling the traditional way, try re-arting them! Ok, maybe that’s not a real term but I like it. Big boxes can become trains, airplanes or robots. Maybe your child loves to cook. Draw on some burners and knobs and pull out the pots and pans. Point being – give ’em a box and let ’em get crafty.
My daughter loves art just like her mama so we took one of our really nice shipping boxes and filled it with art supplies! First I helped her draw the letters and we took turns decorating it with beautiful bugs, flowers – and of course rainbows. She set to work coloring and now we have a bright, beautiful box to store our supplies when creativity strikes again.
