It was a rainy day so there was no playing outside. My boys got together and spent hours (yes, hours) making trains out of cardboard boxes. At first they cut them to make room for the passengers. Then they decorated them, ate afternoon tea in them (as above) and finally, played with them.
Even the baby got involved. I'm not sure how much she enjoyed being in a box though.
I love watching my boys work together learning to share, negotiate, plan and create as a team.
Who would've thought some old cardboard boxes could provide such a positive learning experience and literally hours of entertainment on a rainy day!
