3 in 1 Submarine, House and Tunnel

I'm preparing Aaron for a visit to the Cuchi Tunnels.



Only kidding....

He grew bored of the Pentagon some time ago but I didn't have any other big boxes to make something new. We bought a new fridge over the weekend, so guess what?!

Aaron now has a house/submarine/tunnel depending on his mood. Sometimes its all three at once. And, not just anybody is allowed inside.

This time, I'm letting him decorate it. These big boxes are such great spaces for little kids to draw all over, inside and out. He can draw lying down or standing up. He's creating stories as he draws. Its fantastic! I'm having a great time watching him explore this simple cardboard box.

Part of the joy of being a child is being able to enjoy simple things. All too soon, we start believing that the only things worth having are the ones that are expensive. Aaron is obviously having a ball...and you're doing right in letting him have it!

How ingenious! I hope I'll remember this idea when I have my own kids.

HE is adorable and that idea is so genuinely creative! Kids always love the simple toys best, don't they? :)

The best toys are often the simpliest ones. No need for FisherPrice stuff!! He seems very happy.
