When children are bored, there is nothing like contents of a recycling bin to quickly stir up some fun easy projects!
…Or some elaborate ones. It depends on how carried away you get. Just today, Jeffrey and Anselm spend the evening, pretending that a cardboard box was first a chariot (with Jeffrey as a horse), then a boat (Anselm drew the flag). But then a few months ago, they spent an evening, turning a different cardboard box into a pretty realistic SOYUZ space capsule. Both are fun, and the idea behind it that you can make toys from junk. Sometimes with a little bit of tweaking.
