Every morning my daughter and son wake me up and ask if we can do a project. I mean every morning... A project for them can be anything from making pancakes to dressing up but it usually means arts and crafts. I am always up for it if it means we can stave off the request for TV! I usually have to execute this task before my morning coffee so it has to meet the following requirements – it’s easy, the elements of the project are around the house and the cleanup is not torturous (this is not only true of the projects but of just about everything in my life from cooking to entertaining to exercise -ok I never get a chance to exercise– make it great but make it easy too.)
We did this project again this morning and it was a hit - I call it the Cardboard Castle. Of course I like the minimal version – so chic – but the fun is in the decorating AND it’s great for play after. Turns out it’s perfect for cars, small animals and dolls.
All you need is:
1 cardboard box – any size will do
Decorations – here your kids can do anything from stickers to paint.
Stickers and crayons = easy cleanup
Paint = not so easy cleanup
This morning we used glitter glue and acrylic jewels.
If you make a great one send us a pic!
