All Boxed Up



How is it, that a simple cardboard box can provide hours upon hours of entertainment and creative play for a 5 and 3 year old ?



One of the beauty's of summer...lots of time to just play.




Happy Feet !!

Wasn't the cardboard box listed on the national toy hall of fame list?? I was just telling a friend who had her first baby that with my next I'm doing things completely differently, starting with not buying any toys!! I have found that wooden spoons, pots, pans, containers of various sizes, boxes, sticks, water, and various food items are WAY more fun and entertaining than any painted piece of plastic!!!

Chloe and Blake look like they probably spent all day laughing and having fun in that box! Those are some clean feet by the way!!

So funny you guys are noticing the clean feet, because it is almost never like that over here, even though I do have a thing (as Caroline so graciously pointed out) about dirty dogs... The pictures were taken in the morning...and I must have insisted they clean their footies before going to bed, especially Blake..so he doesn't rub grimmy toes all over me when he slides in our family bed !!

Yes, a box goes a long, long way, over the plastic stuff...that's for sure..

I love the "happy feet" photo too.

I cut the bottom of my foot pretty badly a few years back and had to go to the ER. I think 3 different employees or the ER pointed out HOW DIRTY my feet were. Thats what I get for walking outside barefoot!

I love your pictures - it's all so summery! And yes, there is nothing like a big cardboard box to play in. Happy days!!

LOL Those eyes are so precious. Extra large boxes are such wonderful fodder for the imagination.
