My Daughters Like to Sit in Boxes

With the C-word less than 6 weeks in the future, there have been a few packages arriving at the house and therefore a few more boxes than usual. As one of my favourite picture books from my childhood is My Cat Likes to Hide in Boxes (Eve Sutton & Lynley Dodd, see Six Books), this blog post just had to be…

The children next door like to play video games, but my daughters like to sit in boxes:

So-and-so’s cousin’s daughter is learning French, but my daughter likes to sit in boxes:

My big sister is tidying the play area, but I like to sit in boxes:
Mummy and Daddy are sitting on chairs, but I like to snuggle in boxes:
Expensive toys are all very well but my daughter likes to pretend this box is a boat:
You can tell the pictures taken by DH, they’re the good ones:
Other children have beds but my daughters like to put their duvets in boxes:
Mummy thinks it looks messy, but we love to play in boxes:

The boxes were boats, cars, trains, planes, beds etc but the girls were also quite happy just to snuggle up in them to watch TV too! I am ruining their fun by recycling the cardboard boxes – but not until they’ve been thoroughly coloured in and torn first – and filling up the plastic boxes. Mean mummy! There will always be an empty box somewhere though, even if they have to empty everything out of it first… 🙂

  2. So true! DON’T RECYCLE THAT DADDY – it’s a rocket/pirate ship/racing car etc. We had to get a new washing basket yesterday – first complaint came within minutes of it being sighted – it’s not big enough for me to go to space in. Clearly daddy should have thought of that, rather than it’s compact and space saving design!

  3. My son loves boxes, one Christmas we got him a box full of boxes – lets just say Santa did well that year!
