Fun With a Box

Today was craft day at our house. In The Princess' current reader there was a section on *fun with a box*. Since we have no shortage of boxes around our house right now, we decided to put one to use.

Mr. Elephant

For more *show & tell* fun, visit There Is No Place Like Home.

Kiddos just love things like that. Very cute! My little ones beg us to keep the boxes after a Costco trip.

Give a child (and a man) a box and they will be happy. That was a good crafting project.

Boxes are my boys favorite toys! When we got our new fridge, they spent a lot of time in the box...err "fort/cabin/teepee/tent" The list goes on and on.
I love that the kids (and your hubbs) box became an elephant! lol!

What a fun elephant! It surely is neat to take an idea from a book and see it in 3D. : )
The boxes are sometimes the best thing!

I should have seen this in a timely manner. I have something like 500 boxes in my garage and basement. No kidding. We're going to Craig's List them or something. Wish you were close.
