Can you say ‘parenting win’?

When the holidays are over, parents are often left with a mound of flattened cardboard shipping boxes and bored kids. The solution? Use those boxes to create fun new toys and games! The possibilities are as endless as your imagination (or your Pinterest feed). Make a fort, an easel, marble mazes, boats and more. With each of these crafts you get an engineering or art activity in the creation of the project, then the fun of playing with the end result.
