My CardBoard Box Intervention: Fun Cardboard Box Crafts & Projects.

Cardboard crafts

Back when I was a kid, it was a pretty festive occasion when my parents bought anything that came in a BIG cardboard box. That box was quickly commandeered by my sister and myself and we spent HOURS converting it to dollhouses, playhouses, stalls for our toys horses…whatever the flavor of the moment was.

Nowadays those boxes are quickly broken down into space-saving cardboard bundles and tucked in the recycling bin.

I’m here to do a Cardboard Box Intervention.

STOP throwing out defenseless boxes! Turn them in family fun will little-or-no effort and HECK…the price is right. 🙂
