It's time for costumes and what could be easier than making one with a simple box?
We found some really great ideas out there using discarded boxes. It's a great way to practice the "R's", recycle and reuse.
Here are our picks:
The Hot Air Balloon. You can also make one with a single helium balloon. ( A Large balloon for a kid, a weather balloon for an adult)
Houses of any kind! Play House, Bird House, Dog House, Your House!
The I pod, why not an Ipad, TV, Radio, Computer?
The Lego. There are loads of variations on this. Use large bottle caps instead of cups, a large plastic container painted yellow to be a Lego People.
Robots. You can use a slew of recycled materials for this one. Bottle caps, cups, cans, etc.
The Vehicle Costume. You can be any of the following: School Buses, truck, car, plane, race car, etc. For a school bus carry a lunch bag!
Your favorite product! I love the crayon box. But you can also be a toy, a cereal, a juice box, your favorite food package.
Rubics Cube. This one is for two. You can make a single one person cube also.
Clever and timely, too! A Ballot Box. Do this election or a past historical one...why not run yourself!
