Just before tossing this large diaper box into the recycling bin, I thought, “I can make this into something!” I immediately brought it back inside and got to work.
My original plan was to make it a mailbox, so I cut a ‘mail slot’ in the front and a trap door in the back. Then, I cut ‘mail’ out of another box that was headed for recycling. I soon realized I could do so much more than I had originally planned. So instead of mail, I made cards with colors on one side and days of the week on the other side. I pulled out some shapes from another toy to trace and cut out the holes.
