  • Cereal boxes can make stylish and colorful bookmarks.
  • Use empty tissue boxes to store extra plastic bags.

  • Use empty boxes for kindling your barBQ.
  • Boxes can be transformed into great building blocks.

  1. I used to fly through the cosmos in my refrigerator and oven boxes!

  2. I lived in a refrigerator box for a year. Well, it was inside my room….I then inherited an oven box, which became the “guest bedroom” for my best friend.

  3. And the ULTIMATE: refrigerator boxes afford unlimited options for creative play and art. We just got one from our neighbors and my kids have spent 2 days solid in the box, and are just getting started.
