Turning A Box Into A Fun Activity For Kids

Play teaches children many things like problem solving, team work, how to use imagination and much more. We love this cheap, easy, fun activity for kids to teach all of the above.

What you need:

  1. Large cardboard box
  2. Blindfold
  3. Space without delicate items or sharp corners


What to do:

  1. Have child sit in box.
  2. Blindfold child.
  3. Push child to different rooms and have him guess what room you are in. You can give clues like – there is something yellow here, we like to talk in this room, etc.
  4. If you have enough kids, divide into teams. Have one child get into box & the next child push her to a finish line. Then they switch all while racing against the other team. Be sure to stay clear of stairs & sharp corners!

Who knew so much fun could come from a free “toy”. What fun things have your kids done with boxes?

    These craft ideas are fantastic! I’m always looking for something to do during the heat of the day that will keep little people entertained, yet using their minds… :)
