Cardboard is awesome. It’s the perfect material for your imagination. Before you recycle your latest collection of boxes hand them over to your kids or help them create something of their own!

Ikat bag has a post on several different things they’ve made from cardboard

Not quite a fort but a great place to play from 45wall Design

Love this 2 story clubhouse from bennelson on Instructables

A simple banana box fort from Cardboard Collective

Love Fort Rex from Kat This Kat That

An epic fort with multiple entrances from Supriseaholic

So they can play in the dryer (which my boys always wanted to do) from Estefi Machado

Do you save your cardboard for the kids to play with?

  1. What a great post. I just challenged the moms on my blog to create with boxes…I love these ideas! Who needs toys?

  2. So creative! I have what seems like a garage full of cardboard and a bored child! My son would love the "dryer"…or any of these actually. Nice collection of projects.
