Boxes Make the Best Toys

Best toy ever!

I had this huge box from A Tupperware order (yes I sell Tupperware now). Savannah had the best time coloring and playing with it. We’ve had it for about a month now.

Boxes make great toys Fun in a box


I'm a mother of 2 who likes to get involved in too much! Besides writing here I started a non-profit, I'm on the PTO board, very active in my community and volunteer in the school. I enjoy music, reading, cooking, traveling and spending time with my family. We just adopted our 3rd cat and love them all!

  4. I always loved boxes when I was little. Drove my parents crazy

  5. YES! I told my husband that we were only going to get our youngest kiddo BOXES for Christmas! 😉

  6. My kids LOVE boxes. I get at least one-two very large ones from a co-op order I do every other month. They get a week to play with them (if they don’t fall apart before then) and then they go to recycling.

  7. That’s about right! Our daughter had a huge box that she played with in our basement, and when we downs sized to half and moved of course we tossed it, she was so angry about that LOL.

  8. My kids love boxes – they always get so sad when I have to throw their house/spaceship/pirate ship/etc in the recycling.
