Large cardboard box TV for kids to play inside

This is one of the most fun project we have done recently. It didn't take long to make and the kids played with it for days! I loved watching their crazy imaginations being acted out as they put on different shows for us!

MATERIALS: A very large cardboard box, craft knife, glue and market pens.

TUTORIAL: Get your large cardboard box (I actually joined 2 boxes together to make a MEGA box big enough for my 5 yr old to fit in!), turn it inside out and glue down the top and bottom. This isn't 100% necessary but turning the box inside out gives you nice clean cardboard to decorate.

Cut your TV screen whole in the front and a door in the side so the kids can get in and out. Decorate your TV adding buttons and antennae.

Now play!
