I like finding ways to add a surprise element of fun to an otherwise “everyday” kind of event. Bubbles is always and forever wanting to play with and in the boxes that get delivered to the house, so I thought it would be fun to turn one of them into an actual cardboard box car that she could play with. And since we’d received a few kids DVDs in the mail over the previous few weeks I decided to unveil the “car” as part of a drive in movie experience.
Bubbles has pretended that cardboard boxes are all manner of vehicles in the past. But I figured that with a few inexpensive supplies I could make a cardboard box car that would last a little longer and help enhance her imaginative play. The best part was that it only took about fifteen minutes to make and most of that time is taping the “body” of the car.
