The Joy of a Cardboard Box

The kitchenette at camp got new kitchen cabinets and Jedd wisely brought the boxes home, intact, for the girls on Friday. Oh, did that make for a fun weekend! Jedd used his utility knife to cut elaborate windows and doors, as designed by Mara. I had never seen roofs constructed out of cardboard box houses but leave it to Jedd and his daughter who likes to conceptualize things and create (i.e. Legos). She didn't get that gift from her mom! Hours of fun and creative story lines including wind and rain storms, bedtime, hide and seek, etc.

  1. I want to be there! I love that you have enough boxes for all four of you. It's like a village. Good thinking, Jedd. And, agreed, the rooftops are above and beyond. I'm impressed and I pride myself on my fort-making abilities.
