recyclable parking garage


F received a great parking garage for his 2nd birthday. However, it doesn't hold his (or H's) interest for very long. Before he got the multi-level parking garage complete with elevator we would make our own with boxes that were going to be recycled. As it turns out, both H&F still prefer the recycled box structures. They can be as simple or complex as you like, with tunnels, trapdoors, hidden places to park, etc.

What you need:
  • A box or two (or more if you'd like!)
  • Strong tape (duct or packing)
  • A pair of scissors that will cut through the cardboard (better if you do it unless you have an older child)
Here are some we made a couple of months ago:
This was one of the more elaborate ones we've made.
tunnels are fun

As you can see, dinosaurs also get involved, as do marbles, and anything else for this little "world."
