Play idea with old cardboard boxes

There’s really no end to the imaginative fun in the ordinary objects and junk around the house.

Here’s a commonly found object… OLD CARDBOARD BOXES!

 

They make a terrific cave or tunnel

So why not toss an old cardboard box to your little one and see what else they come up with.
It might surprise you.

To a child, life really can be this simple.

  1. Toddler imagination is indeed amazing. The slide seems to be a favourite. When we were sunning my daughter's mattress it became her slide as well!

  2. You know... I've sometimes regretted purchasing toys for the kid, because he's just as happy with boxes and regular items that can be found around the house!

    He uses my shawls, sarongs, back scratchers, fly smackers and what have yous... and gets entertained for hours!

    He's happiest with cardboard boxes, though! ;)

    Thanks for linking up!

  3. It's really amazing how they can play with just the simplest of things :)

  4. Oh I agree, the simplest things actually make the best toys! Many times, I find they are more interested in the packaging than the toy itself. Thanks for linking up!

And so Nathan’s very first day of kindergarten is over. It was a mixture of good, bad, sweet and sour. I think that so much happens throughout the day, it can be challenging for a little person to filter through it all.

These days my days are packed full to the brim. From the moment I wake up to the sound of Grace calling through the baby monitor and Nathan’s cheeky face peering at me over the edge of the bed… to the evening when I finally tuck them into bed and say goodnight.
