Cardboard boxes are great! We are going to start sharing some fun ways to use them. We recently bought a travel car seat (for when we get to travel again) and instead of immediately tossing the very large box into the recyclables, we opened up both ends and made a tunnel. Check out the video clips below for some of first play with it. Every time he goes near it now, he goes for his cars and his soccer ball, of course after he crawls through it. And it’s not as if he’s been deprived of a tunnel as we have the ikea one at home, but new and novel is what makes it fun!
The four ways we used it were:
- driving cars and trucks through it
- rolling the soccer ball back and forth
- sliding puzzle pieces through it (and I loved that he was trying to put them in the puzzle)
- and of course crawling though it
We’ve been ordering a few things so stay tuned for more box use for your toddler!
