Materials Needed

Let's Create!

  •  Take your big box and cut off the top (you don't want it to be able to close all the way). 

  • Let your little one decorate it in whichever way they can!

  • 6 months +: spread out some paint on the box and let them move it around

  • 11 months +: let them dip their own fingers (or toes) into the paint and spread it on the box

  • 18 months +: try out a paint brush or crayons!

  • When they are done, they have their own little "castle" to play in! 

  • Optional extension: use smaller boxes and let them decorate and then build with them!
