Want a way to keep a preschooler or toddler busy for a while? Want to have fun with them while fostering imagination?

Cardboard

…and markers and some tape sometimes, but really cardboard.

Riley’s new car seat box is a nice big one. Last night Landon was getting antsy – it was too hot to go outside to play. I popped the ends of the box open and laid it on it’s side, brought in the container of crayons and he had a blast. He called it his cave. We wrote that on the front flap. He colored the floor and ceiling of the box – Riley even helped out too.

We’ve done cardboard things in the past, like his cardboard car (he still asks to play with it!) and his cardboard ball game, and I plan on turning this “cave” into something when the cave fun has ended.

So… grab a big box. Add your child and a handful of markers or crayons and see where their imagination takes them!
