Have a few cardboard boxes lying around? Me too.
Let’s put these “free” activity supplies to good use.
My garage officially looks like an online warehouse. I can either drown in my online boxes… or put them to use!
I choose the latter (notice that stopping my online ordering was not an option).

Cardboard box activities are the absolute best
There’s nothing I love more than when a cardboard box gets repurposed moment. These are an activity gold mine, just waiting for their day in the sun.
Cardboard boxes should always get a second look whether you have a 12 month old or a 12 year old.
Cardboard boxes can be just about anything you or your child wants them to be and how could we love them anymore?
What will you find in this list of cardboard box activities?
Friends, you will find the best of the best but also, the simplest of the simplest.
This activity list was PERFECTLY curated (pat on my back) with activities that we can set up easily, have some fun, and get the kids imagining with their boxes.
Some of these activities do need a little bit of extra work to get them started – maybe a minute or two – but I’m fine with that. Time spent getting a cardboard box activity together is time well spent.
There’s magic to be had in these cardboard boxes – let’s get to it!
