Tot Spot: Creative Play with Upcycled Cardboard Box
"Vrrrooooommm vrooooom", Mark Jr. loves to say.
You start by cutting the flaps off of the sides of the box with a razor blade.
Trace the shapes with things around the kitchen, such coffee tins and cookie cutters.
You can use scrap cardboard to cut out the steering wheel and then attach it with wire, a tact, or use a paper clip.
If you want to get super creative then you can even make straps and attach them to the sides of the box so your little one to walk around with their new car zzzzoooooooming all over the house!
There are so many fun things you can do with recycled materials! My 16 month old loves his car, but I can tell you that as cute as the steering wheel is.. it isn't going to last five minutes!! I love it!
Have a great weekend!
