Do you have a clutter of boxes lying around? Are you looking for activities for the days of summer to entertain your kids? TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® has a few fun and creative solutions for you to enjoy with your kiddos!
Fort. Building a fort is probably the most popular project for kids of all ages. Constructing and designing a fort takes up time and can be really fun! Even after the fort is built, your little ones can have fun playing games inside. If you really want to keep the kids busy, get a little more creative by building a pirate ship or a castle.
Doll house. Help your kids make a special house for their dolls. Have fun cutting out windows and doors, and decorating the inside and outside of the doll house.
Puppet theatre. You can also create a puppet theater out of boxes. You children and their friends can have fun cutting out puppets from card board, decorating them, and gluing them to popsicles sticks.
Sensory box. Another fun, simple idea would be to make a sensory box. Cut a hole in the top of a box and place objects in the box for the kids to feel or smell. This is a fun hands-on activity for your kids to enjoy.
Lemonade stand. As the last days of summer fly by, take advantage of the heat and build and decorate a lemonade stand. Even after it’s built, the kids can make and sell lemonade and make an entire day out of this project.
Maze. If you have a surplus of boxes, you can cut out holes or sides of boxes and secure them together to create a maze for your kids to enjoy. I promise you, they will have a blast crawling through it and trying to find their way out.
The opportunities are endless. If you’re looking for additional ideas to keep the kiddos happy and entertained during their last part of summer break, be sure to check out the many ideas on Pinterest!
