There’s pretty much nothing you can’t do with a cardboard box and making a simple boat for kids is no exception. These are so easy and fun! A friend gave me a nice long cardboard box a while back, because I am a hoarder of all things crafty, and I made it into a duct tape boat for play group. It hung in there for months too until I accidentally left it out in the rain. So sad. I could have gotten years out of this baby, which would have made up for the duct tape investment. I seriously need to go to duct tape anonymous. So addicted.

Cardboard boxes are awesome for imaginative play. The kids hid in the boat, relaxed in the boat, giggled in the boat and rowed the boat. We even had a few moms who took a ride. If you have young children and want a great way for them to spend hours of fun, try this! Find a box, neighbors always have a few laying around, and cover it with duct tape in the pattern of your choice. You’re good to row! (see what I just did there?)
