creative reuse

Reduce, reuse, recycle.

Lately, we've been trying to improve our reuse.

Before our large cardboard boxes head for recycling (or composting) my husband turns them into amazing toys. and you know how much kids love playing in cardboard boxes!!

Granted, the reuse in this case only extends the cardboard's life in our home for a few weeks. but we have lots of fun with them during that time!

These pictures show an awesome boat and a car ramp we are currently playing with. You should know that I'm not tooting my own horn here - I had absolutely nothing to do with these projects! Full credit to my husband.
