I know it’s only February, but c’mon! We’re in the south, right? This past winter has been cold, and we were just snowed in for three days with 9 inches of snow, plus an inch or two of ice. Not exactly what I expected when we moved here!
So since we’ve been stuck inside, I decided to make a new toy that would keep little man occupied for a while longer. He seemed to be getting sick of all the ones he has. Tough life, huh? So I started with a cardboard box that I had on hand from our move, cut down one of the sides and laid it all out flat. The goal here was to make some kind of car city that he can use all his cars on.
Next, I drew a road in the middle of the box, and used each flap on the outside to create store fronts for a town. The hubs says I can never be a city planner because I put the Saloon next to the school. I obviously wasn’t paying attention, but looking back, maybe it was brilliant marketing
And there’s the finished project! Just took about 45 minutes, some drawing, and 3 different colored sharpies. Lucas isn’t that into it yet, but he likes playing on it so hopefully his interest will grow!
What do you do on days you’re stuck inside?
