and then we have the painted box....


just another in the long line of ideas for winter blues...paint a box! as you can imagine we have tons of boxes coming through our house with my nonchalantmom business and no matter how many...what the size...the kids always go crazy! so from time to time we take out the paint set and paint them! we also like to make them into cars and houses and even robots! (another blog for another day...) it's so much fun and so very simple, and we like to make windows and doors for peeking because eventually your kids will end up inside the box! good for all ages, so paint and have some fun!

Really cute idea. I usually let them have at the box with a tin of crayons for a few days, but I never thought about paints - they would love it! It reminds me of the children's book Not a Box - have you read it? We got it from the library and keep renewing - may have to own it.

Yes...the same goes here. Ours seem to turn into vehicles with wheels attached by pipecleaners and steering wheels. It is fun for the blah winter days...
