Cardboard Box Rockets and Castles

Filed under: Kids — Savvy Housekeeper at 11:18 am on Wednesday, December 9, 2009

As a kid, I played in cardboard boxes. Didn’t you? At some point I’m sure I pretended a box was a rocket ship, but now I am kind of envious I didn’t have something like the one Stacey Gordon’s husband made for their son:

Even better, these amazing cardboard castles by Ann Wood. This was her first attempt:

Her second:

Just looking at them inspires me to try to make one of my own, although I’m not quite sure why.

Proof that the box is more exciting than the toy!
