Cardboard Boxes – There are so many fun things that my preschoolers and I can do with them! They among my kids favorite “toys”. Rachele from Tinkerlab, in honor of her 1-year blogging birthday, is having a round-up of activities you can do with cardboard boxes. Fun! We had fun “throwing paint” onto our box with a makeshift pendulum.
How to have fun playing and decorating a cardboard box?
We used paint, yarn, a clothespin, diaper wipes, a cardboard box and some willing kiddos to help the paint fly.
After tying the yarn to a nail we had hanging on a beam, we squeezed the paint onto a diaper wipe, pulled back and let it fly! When that got boring we began throwing the wipes. Could you believe that my two year old left to go play in a different part of the yard? We were having too much fun for her – that and it was harder for her to reach/pull/throw the paint. Poor thing.
Many thanks to the other participants in the Cardboard box challenge. Have fun browsing their submissions:
