Before you recycle your packaging and boxes, make them into toys for your kids. Make boxes into cars that your kids can sit in or kitchens by stacking boxes. Make large boxes into a house by adding windows and a door or connect boxes to make a house. There’s that old joke about not giving the child a toy, just the box … well give them both. I promise they’ll love it. Be creative! Merry Christmas!
When I was growing up, every year after we put up the Christmas Tree, my dad let me have the Christmas tree box. Instead of putting it in storage over the Christmas Holiday Season, I would color on it, hide in it and pretend it was my magical fort. Then when it was time to put the Christmas tree away, my dad would tape up the box and put the tree away. I loved just playing in the box it was tons of fun and great for my dad.
