Another bonus of the never ending renovations is the never ending supply of big boxes! We haven’t even got the new kitchen appliances and already we’ve made a Lego town with one big flat box, and when the shower frame came out of it’s box (don’t get excited, that doesn’t mean we have a working shower yet!) I had plans for it!
This time the box was for the smallest member of our family.
The boy who doesn’t say any useful words such as ‘Mamma’ or ‘drink’ but who’s newest word is ‘hiding’.
“Where’s Noey?” his siblings ask him constantly.
And his reply is always…
Even though he is quite obviously not hiding.
Clearly he needed somewhere to hide, so we made him a tunnel.
This is as simple as it gets. It’s just a big box or large flat piece of cardboard. I roughly measured out thirds and scored a sort of straight line to fold along. Then I folded it into a triangle shape and taped it together.
Of course then my drawing mad big boy decided it needed to be decorated and we discovered it also made a lovely drawing surface.
And now Noey has somewhere to go when he is ‘hiding’!
Plus it’s lots of fun to crawl through the tunnel, to roll cars through it, or to curl up with a pillow and go to sleep… well for a second anyway!
