The past week has been quite busy blog wise and I have had loads of deliveries come through the door.
Quite a lot of toys which I have hidden away for the moment until I have a chance to review them. But because of all these things turning up, it means that we always have loads of empty boxes which the boys don't mind making use of.
They love creating things out of them and I regularly cut the boxes up so that we have all sorts of sizes and shapes of cardboard to use when making things. You may remember a while back, we created our replica of the Blackpool Tower in our post Building the Blackpool Tower using just one cardboard box, some string, tape and loads of paint.
The boys love creating things and using boxes in their creations.
At the moment, we are going through the building forts phase. Every single box we received has to be climbed into, climbed on top of, or jumped on until it is flat.
The huge box in the photos is from a toy garage delivery. I managed to get the toy out and hidden before the boys could see but they just had to have the box. It was huge and the love climbing in and on top of it and even trying to tip it over whilst inside it. I think we may need a new home just to accommodate all of the boxes we are accumulating for the boys to play with.
It's amazing how much fun can be had with boxes. My mum actually said that when I and my siblings were children, we would much rather play with the boxes at Christmas rather than the toys themselves.
Isn't it amazing how much fun kids can have with a bit of packaging. Now don't get me started on bubble wrap!
