The problem with toddlers is that they drink a lot of milk. The problem with toddler twins that are kinda skinny is that they drink a lot of whole milk. Which means we also have to have skim at home. Which means that by the time the week is over I am swimming in milk boxes. This could pose a problem or force make me think about creative things to do with this stuff.
This craft is great since it gets rid of A LOT of cartons at once and you will never be worried that you forgot playing dice or blocks.
Take two milk boxes the same size. Measure the base, mark the same distance on the side of the box and cut. You are making a cube.
Cut the other carton the same way, discard the tops (or wait till I think of what to do with them). You now have 2 cubes, both missing a side.
Push one cube into the other the open side down
Now you have a cube. You can tape the edge together and use it this way.
We painter ours but you can cover yours in wrapping paper and use as present box, cover with contract or construction paper and draw on it, even cover in different textured fabrics and give a toddler to explore.
If you decide to use any paper make sure to glue or cover to make it more durable
These could become fun blocks to build with
or you can step it up a notch and make them into throwing dice. The one on the right is a traditional one and the one on the left is garden themed.
With snakes, butterflies, ants, ladybugs, snails, bees which work so well with this most adorable Homemade Nature game made by Pumpkin Patch.
