10 Cool Cardboard Projects to Make For Your Kids

10 Cool Cardboard Projects to Make For Your Kids

My friends, I have found one of the most awesome sites on the face of the planet: Ikatbag. In particular, I love Lier’s cardboard projects. She’s the mother of three children and is constantly making them fun play items using recycled materials. I hope to be that kind of mother when I eventually have children. Also, she is totally supporting my theory that a kid would rather play with the box something comes in than the toy itself . . . and it’s so awesome when the box becomes the toy. Click through the slideshow to view ten awesome cardboard creations from Lier!
