Kids Summer Camp at Home - Box City

Other than swimming lessons, I don't plan to put my kids in any other classes or camps this summer.  So I'm hoping to fill their summer days with lots of fun & inexpensive activities around the house.  The type of activities that will keep them engaged & off of the computer.  :)

I saw this amazing box city on pinterest & knew my girls would have fun making their own.  So we pulled all of the saved shipping boxes out of the closet & they got to work.  They spent a whole afternoon building it & I helped with the glue gun.  We finished it around bath time & I really had to work hard to pull them away to get ready for bed.  They were so happy with their creation & they just wanted to play!

I think that if my girls were a little bit older they would have spent more time building their city & adding details.  They were just so very excited to get this thing made. 

Thumbs up for this activity.  They are still playing with it a week later!

Such a great idea! I actually gave my daughter a box (a-hem...a fat tire beer box) and she made little cottage for her barbies...kept her busy for a solid hour and half. I imagine this would keep her busy all afternoon! -erin
