I do wish I had a more sophisticated project to present today but for now this will have to do until I can get to the antique store for something more fascinating!
But until then-this is a project I came up with my oldest daughter to help entertain us one afternoon. We received something in the mail in this narrow long box which is perfect to use for this project. A wider box would also work though.Then we cut different shaped holes in the box.
And now we can throw little bean bags in it for a bean bag toss. Surprisingly this game was pretty fun for the kids and the box can certainly be dressed up and painted. The kids love painting so if they can participate it is more fun.
With the excess we built these little cardboard books and the kids loved these as well. They made their own stories in them.
Again, apologies for the lack of sophistication but if you ever find yourself bored at home with the kids and need a fun craft with the kids this worked wonders for us!
