Coloring on a Box

Dh brought home a box from work, and I was sure that O would like to play in it. Wrong! She's shown no interest in it at all. Tonight dh suggested that we get out her markers and color on the box. What a great idea! I was very impressed with him. O loved it! We all scribbled some, and then dh and O had fun tracing their hands, feet, and shoes on the box. O also loved taking the marker tops on and off. Thanks Elliott for your fun idea!!!


  1. Our daughter Z and her cousin both loved sticking playing cards in a slot cut into the bottom of a similar overturned box when they were about one and a half. They would carefully slip the cards through one by one and when they were done someone would move the box, revealing a pile of cards, and they'd start all over.

  2. What a great idea! I'm sure O will love that. We will try it soon. Thanks!
