10 uses for a big cardboard box - the best toy ever!

We've all come down with some pesky colds and have stayed home this week keeping our germs to ourselves. Thankfully, we have the best toy ever on hand to help keep Sweetpea entertained throughout the day. What is the best toy ever, you ask? Why a huge cardboard box, of course. Here are a few things we've been doing with said box this week:

1. Playing store
2. Playing house
3. Decorating said house inside and out with markers and stickers
4. Playing hide and seek
5. Pretending to be a Jill in the box
6. Pretending the box is a boat and sailing the high seas
7. Putting chairs in the box and pretending it is a bus or train
8. Putting a sleeping bag and pillow in the box and pretending to camp under the stars
9. Getting in the box with a flashlight and making silly faces
10. Pretending the box is a library and "checking out" books to read

What kinds of things do you do with the big boxes that occasionally show up at your door?

I stuck my dog in a box and made him a Balloon Boy costume for Halloween.

Not as creative as Sweetpea though. She's one amazing little girl!

My kids adore big boxes! I kept the box from the wagon for about 2 years before they mangled it so much that it had to be recycled.

The possibilities are endless, aren't they? We've still got a stash of these in the garage from our move. The kids love 'em!

Aren't boxes the best! My kids made a two story fort out of our moving boxes last year - It was so great and so creative! Thanks for stopping by my blog!
