Today we found the most awesome box left out for the bin men so we picked it up and took it home to unleash our imagination upon.
Who doesn’t love a box? And this box is going to be the focus of this week’s toddler play and will be transformed into many things.
Our first transformation was a library den. Here’s how we did it.
I started by cutting out some windows and a door on the side of the box.
The kids then helped to paint it with some matt emulsion we had in the shed.

I then cut out some window frames which we stuck on with a glue stick.
I used some wire battery operated fairy lights from the pound shop which I stuck to the roof with masking tape (because I didn’t have any sticky tape).
Noah got to work making some books for our library shelves, and a sign for the outside.

Finally, we filled it with a blanket, some cushions and books, and climbed inside…
