Think outside the box
Here’s an easy and affordable fix for, ‘What shall we do this weekend?'. Take our cardboard boxes, add some crafty bits and bobs and, hey presto, hours of fun for little ones.
Here's how to make a playhouse, a racing car, a finger puppet theatre, a sensory box and shadow puppets.
If you want even more ideas for getting creative with kids, check out our fun activity pack.
Pens and paints at the ready. Get set for some arty flourishes. Go! This racing car only takes a little effort for miles of fun. And once the kids have had enough screeching around, you can re-use the wheels and lights when they make a pit stop for dinner.
It's a riot of textures, colours and sounds down on the farm. Little kids learn with their senses. In this farmyard box, they can run their fingers through stones, mimic animal sounds as they play farmer. Or just fill a box with lots of textures, colours and shapes.
