miniDIY: ramps and tunnels
from old cardboard boxes

<<< psst! you can see a full list of my diy projects here! >>>

time : minutes
difficulty  ★ ☆ ☆ ☆   
hazards : razor blade
would i do it again? : yes

we have LOADS of boxes here in preparation for our BIG MOVE. a few of the boxes were too small to be very useful...so instead i made a ramp and tunnel structure for K. HE LOVES IT!

i didn't start out with a plan -- i just cut and taped as i went. i used four smallish boxes, the largest being about 12" x 16" x 6".

it's not the prettiest thing i've ever made, but i didn't want to invest too much in it
since it's going to take a beating from a rambunctious toddler.

the loooong ramp is definitely his favorite part.
he lines up all his cars and watches them race down one by one.

he also likes hiding his cars in the random nooks and crannies...

here are some more projects i've done that feature cardboard.
have you done anything fun with cardboard boxes?
please share in the comments!
