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!
