20 Clever DIY projects using old CARDBOARD BOXES!!

We have been unpacking boxes like crazy (from our recent move from Colorado to Oklahoma)!  And the pile of perfectly good boxes is growing into a mountain out in the garage.  We are most likely going to post “free boxes” on Craiglist really soon to get rid of them all (have you posted free to Craigslist before…it’s magical!) but before we do that, I have been thinking I would love to make the kids a few things from the boxes.  Maybe some villages, play houses, cars, musical instruments, etc.  And then, I decided to peek around online for other ideas.  And holy smokes, my mind is on FIRE!  I can’t wait to get the utility knife out and start cutting up some really cool things for the kiddos.  So, Craigslist will have to hold tight for their free boxes — because we have some projects to make!

 

Check all these great ideas out (with a few of my oldies sprinkled in)!
