DIY Cardboard Boat


Do you ever have cardboard boxes that you don't know what to do with? How about build an awesome fort or kid's cardboard boat! A long time ago a sweet reader from Japan sent me this photo of what they made for their son Hugo and while going through some files today I came upon it again! Isn't it rad?! Next time we have some boxes lying around I know what we'll will be making. Thanks Ruth for sharing.

That's such a cool picture! I remember having so much fun with moving boxes when I was younger...my brothers and I made a few boat boxes back in the day!

Great idea, although my kids are also thrilled with just the plain box!
