Feature Friday - Light Up a Cardboard Box

We spent a lot of time at home this week due to sickness, so we were trying to come up with some fun things to do at home.  A few weeks ago we made a cardboard house and then through some blog hopping I came up on THIS IDEA from Play At Home Mom.


It was really easy to do.  I just got out a ball point pen and took some rage out on the box.  As I made the holes Baden cheered me on.  "Good job Mommy!"  I love it when they get into things we do together.


Then I shoved the lights tightly into the holes.  Now our cardboard box in pimping.  We just need to add a leopard shag rug or something :)


I'm so glad it's the weekend and everyone is now healthy.  Yay!  Next week starts our "Just Like New" series featuring some talented bloggers who are helping me while I'm in NY.

Thanks for reading.

We did this right before Christmas-- talk about the fun kids can have in a cardboard box. We should've just bought big boxes for Christmas!!

Oh that's awesome! I have a huge box in the garage that was going out with the recycling next week. I have other plans for it now! Thanks Cheri!

Love it! My high school boyfriend did one of those for me but spelled out my name in lights. I loved it and kept it for years. A fun idea for little kids and big kids!

Looks like fun! It would be cool to make a permanent wooden sign with LED lights for a night light too!

That's hilarious! I just posted on my blog about the cardboard fort we made today! It was inspired by Play At Home Mom too!
