Who needs video games when you have a box?





So these are my wonderful, silly & imaginative boys AJ (short for Austin James) & Braydon.

I giggle just thinking about the crazy stuff they do LOL. So... my mom bought new chairs for the backyard. Before I continue I have to add that it has sort of become a tradition for my kids to make some sort of vehicle out of the box every time my mom gets something new. Also, my boys LOVE LOVE LOVE Army video games. I have to fight sometimes to get them away from those games & outside for some exercise!

So...... the box became a tank, and a large mailing tube for a poster became the barrel of their cannon. They spent hours in the box! They screamed from inside "the enemy approaches FIRE THE CANNON!"

LOL... which makes me think... I WANT A BOX TO PLAY IN TOO! haha

that's awesome, something I think is being lost in the television and video game era
I love seeing the creativity

I could play with a box for hours too, or just figure out a way to make it into something useful

totally awesome, love the tank!

My kids are the same way! Whenever a box comes in the house that they can play with, toys take second priority., LOL
