60 fun ways to use a box with kids

If you’ve read my blog for any amount of time you know I like the convenience of ordering from Amazon. As long as the pricing is the same and shipping is free, I might as well save myself time driving around to several stores!! So we end up with LOTS of boxes of various shapes and sizes. Being the thrifty creative Mom that I am, we do lots of playful, fun, and even educational things with them.
