Creative cardboard box toys

Kids have the most awesome imaginations.
They can make toys out of anything and everything.
If your kids are anything like mine it seems like most days they prefer playing with trash
(i.e. old boxes, oatmeal canisters, paper towel rolls, etc.)
over all their pricey toys.

Just the other day I saw these cardboard box creations over here.
I loved how they turned plain old boxes into cute and fun toys!
I had to share.

How cute is this castle?!

I know Mackenzie would have hours of fun playing with this princess baby bed.
And Wesley is a sucker for anything that involves balls.

And for the more serious box makers...
check out this car and gas station

and this fun kitchen.

So many fun ideas!

Or if the thought of spending all that time making a piece of trash cute seems silly to you
just give your kids a plain ol' box.
I'm sure they will love that too :)

My son is 26 months old and boxes are his favorite toys too. We had a cardboard box that DH decorated like a bobsled and it was named 'The Speedy Turtle'. That thing actually lasted about 8 months before it died. It apparently was some super sturdy cardboard.

Just watch the whole thing through.
