After that scrumptious BabyEarth cardboard box conveniently arrives on your doorstep, you know, the one that contains today’s sassiest baby booty, put it to kid-friendly use before pitching it into the recycle bin with these three eco-conscious ideas:
1. Turn your child’s poster art into a puzzle. Glue one of your child’s drawings or paintings to a cardboard box flap. After the poster dries on the BabyEarth cardboard box flap, neatly cut the cardboard into creative puzzle pieces. Enjoy putting the puzzle together with your child!
2. Decorate the box. Children absolutely love decorating cardboard boxes! Provide your child crayons, markers or paint and let your pint-sized artist go wild. To get extra eco-friendly mileage out of the box (and a ton of smiles) forward the box along as a care package to someone special.
3. Create a picture frame. Transform the box into a picture frame. Cut out a cardboard backing (desired size) and a top frame in which you’ve cut an opening in the center. Glue the two pieces together, leaving a side open to insert a photograph or your child’s drawing–or handprint. Decorate the frame with tissue paper, paint, twigs or other household materials.
