Think Outside the BOX! by Annette McNally


I had a big cardboard box left over from a present my son received and I saw my boys playing with it on and off.  I knew I didn't want to throw it away but I wanted to create something special for them.  But what exactly? I decided to search on Pinterest for some ideas and I came across a pin from Picklebums on “What To Do With a Big Box? - Make a Town”I automatically knew my boys would love this! So I came up with the idea of spray painting the inside of the box with chalk paint and I grabbed my kids colorful chalk and I started creating a town for them.  

Here's how I made it...
