With every package we receive, I get a new cardboard challenge. If you don’t know it by now, let me bring you up to speed: I LOVE DIY toys for kids and I made a few for my preschoolers. The most popular are the waterproof car wash and the colorful play town . It is a creative outlet for me that generates toys for my boys. Win-win!
The sled we ordered online a couple of weeks ago came in a huge box. I used it to make Valentines decorations and left the rest for my boys to play with. When they were done drawing, punching and cutting (my oldest tries his scissors on anything he lays his hands on) I decided to turn it into a road for their cars. I cut out a few trees and houses on the outer edges and let the kids draw them.
This cardboard road is a more elaborated version that I painted myself. This time I used a small box, which makes the road perfect for hot wheels cars.
