We thought it about time we gave a little focus to the trusty cardboard box again! After all, we have a feeling that we’ll be relying on them a lot with all the online deliveries in the run up to the holiday period. We know that our readers have shown a lot of interest in the history of the cardboard box and that got us thinking - just how many different uses are there for cardboard boxes? We're sure that there are probably some really creative and inspired uses out there and we thought we'd give you the chance to win some prizes if you share yours!
Naturally cardboard boxes are great for things like moving home or for storing things but we’re sure there are a whole host of other uses for them. Do your children prefer the boxes to the presents on Christmas day? Do you have a creative or practical use for old boxes; have you build a bookshelf or keepsake box? Or perhaps you have another inspirational idea?
We got thinking in the office and have some up with a few ideas to start you off.
A cardboard box fort - to keep the children occupied for an hour or so!
A useful way to collect up the leaves from the garden?
Or perhaps covering them in some lovely paper to make a gift box?
