Twice the Fun Tuesday: Boxes

I have a hard time throwing boxes away.

There are so many good uses for them, and I have fun memories of playing with them as a child.

Old refrigerator boxes must, of course, be turned into little houses, complete with windows and doors. Two small children can be set afloat on the high seas of a living room carpet with the right sized boxes and a sail made of a stick and old sheets.Even smaller boxes, when plentiful, made great playthings in our house growing up because they could be stacked ceiling-high into castles like blocks. And then, (of course), they were dashed to the floor by running through them like madmen.

Go here for more great tips today.Do you have a new use for an everyday object? Please feel free to leave a link to your post on the Mr. Linky below! You don't have to link back to this site (although it would be great if you did!) The only things I ask are that your post be family-friendly and that the link go directly to the post itself and not some other page of your blog. Thanks!

Oh my gosh, boxes are the BEST! One of the greatest Christmas presents so far came from my Mom to my son. She filled a huge box with smaller boxes and wrapped all of them - he was THRILLED!!! He played with those boxes until they literally fell apart.

Happy Tuesday!

The box tower is quite impressive. We also like to turn them into cars with paper plate wheels.
