Star Box

I've decided it's time to be a little more creative with the boys' playtime. I found a great idea on Play At Home Mom today and I decided to try it out. 

The Star Box: We still have so many boxes left over from moving and extra Christmas lights downstairs, so it was easy for me to put it together quickly. I punched holes with an old pen for the lights to go in and cut off the flaps so it's easier for the boys to crawl in and out. 

As soon as I set it up, the boys were on it like bees on honey! We put their cars and books in there and I crawled in to play with them as well. They LOVED it. The only thing I've got to figure out is how to keep little hands from pulling the lights out of the holes, which results in bulbs being pulled out and the whole strand going out. It's kind of annoying having to go through every light to get the strand to work again.

(Liam a bit annoyed with brother getting in his way.)
