Things To Do With Cardboard Boxes - Pretend they are Fire Engines!

Recently a lot of packages that we have been getting have been coming in cardboard boxes. The fantastic thing about cardboard boxes is that they have a multitude of uses with a little imagination, something which we have in abundance! A few evening's ago, whilst I was cooking dinner, I could hear Top Ender and Baby Boy playing in the living room and having a great time if the shouts of joy were anything to go by.

I went into the living room to find Top Ender pushing Baby Boy up and down the living room in a cardboard box we had received a delivery in (it had Baby Boy's birthday cake in it from Lego Duplo!). Between them they had devised a game of Fire Engines and were happily playing and making a lot of noise together too!

It just goes to show that with a little imagination you can have Family Fun with the simplest of materials!
