All summer I’m joining in with some of my blogging friends to bring you some great crafts that you can do with your kids without spending silly amounts of cash! Our second challenge was to think of some fun things to make from a cardboard box and everyone got stuck in coming up with some cool ideas! I love cardboard box crafts because kids seem naturally drawn to wanting to play with empty boxes anyway and it helps me feel better that the boxes are getting another use rather than just being popped straight into the recycling. Plus it’s cheap, did I mention that bit?!
