Toddler Fun with Cardboard Boxes: 9 Awesome Projects

Okay toddler parents, how many times has this happened to you: you spend mucho dinero on the latest must-have toy and a ton of time getting the dang thing out of the twisty-tie straight jacket it’s wearing, only to have your toddler entertain herself for five hours with the packaging?

Toddlers’ affection for cardboard boxes is a universal truth. Seriously, it’s up there with their fondness for mac and cheese and their hatred for pants.

And sure, you could just put a box in front of your kid and call it a day, but if you’re feeling extra fancy you could take the lead from the awesome people behind the projects I’m sharing with you today.

I think your toddler will be super impressed. I mean, I would be and I’m 35 29.
