Kids in a Box
Monday, 8 June 2009
My niece and grandchildren had more fun in this storage box (first photo): hiding in it and surprising aunts, uncles and cousins as they passed by. We laughed so hard because they were laughing so hard. The cardboard box (second photo) was one of those appliance boxes large enough to make a fort out of, providing days of play.
My own children loved boxes, too, and sheets draped over tables or behind sofas. I don't remember making indoor forts when I was young, but my siblings and neighbors and I made various rickety outdoor ones with old lumber, branches and leaves.
