Hockey

So we had the opportunity to watch a College hockey game at our alma mater a few weeks ago with family. This was a first for S, but A’s second game. The kids enjoyed it, especially the live marching band. And after we got home it was all S could talk about. So I grabbed some cardboard box, tape, & scissors & got to work making a couple hockey sticks and a puck. I ended up putting some plastic knives between 2 pieces of cardboard before taping them together for added stability. And it worked like a charm.

Skis or ice skates

Skis or ice skates, whichever you would call them the kids are having a blast today!

A & S have been wanting to go ice skating,  but it is a bit too cold for the outside rink.  So today  we turned the newest delivery packages into skis! (Or as A calls them,  ice skates).

Cardboard Car Track

S got some matchbox cars for Christmas. So to go along with his other cars we decided make a track/ garage from our cardboard boxes.   After scrolling through Pinterest, I got some neat ideas.   S helped me measure,  tape,  and hold parts in place.  

S was so excited he got right to playing as we were still making it!  Then after we picked A up she was excited to see what we made.   Countless hours have been spent with this creation today!   

*Note:  I would like to decorate it with roads & whatnot,  but the kids seem to love it just the way it is.

Rocket Ship to House

We decided it was time to re-imagine our rocket ship.  So, today it turned into a house,  which included a chimney, doorbell, & a room with a mailbox.   The mailbox is the biggest hit for both A & Saturday. 

A only wanted a chimney if we could add a Santa 🙂  We had fun decorating house & making our mail.

Cardboard Santa Sleigh

We are having a blast with all of these cardboard boxes.  Today along with the cozy nook we made a Santa Sleigh!

I don’t remember how we got to this decision,  but we did and I am so glad!  I love how the sleigh turned out,  and even better is how much A & S love it! 

It is equipped with back supports, a seat, runners, & even trusty reindeer!

Cardboard Christmas Nook

When the neighbors get a huge box,  the possibilities are endless! 

We learned that all 3 of us could fit in the box.  Then we spent a bit of time playing Jack in the Box. 

Then we took out the corner supports for a different project & took the big one up to A’s room.  Up there we transformed out into a cozy little Christmas nook.  We laid it on its side & poked holes through the now top.  Then we placed Christmas lights through the holes so they could be seen from inside. 

What a cozy little spot this is!
