With online shopping being so popular, it seems that we always end up with tons of cardboard around the house. While I was at co-blogger Kristin’s house for a play date the other day, the kids decided it would be fun to build a fort out of the mountain of cardboard that was in her basement. I posted the photo on Instagram and my followers thought it was so neat that I decided I better post it on the blog.
Here’s what we ended up with:
The lights added a nice touch! The dog even had to check it out.

Kristin and her son also made a car:
Here are the straps that hold the car up:
I have seen cardboard houses for sale online for $65 or more. They are already put together and the kids get to decorate them. It is so much more fun building the entire fort/car/whateveritmaybe together. The kids get a lot of enjoyment out of it and it’s fun for adults too.
Tools needed: Cardboard, duct tape, makers and a string of lights add a nice touch 😉
