Here's an idea for you -
Make beautifully decorated boxes with your little one -they love it and they are very useful!
Step 1: Save some cardboard boxes from your recycling bin.
Step2: Gently open them up and turn them inside out.
Step 4: When the flat "boxes" are nice and dry put them back together again preferably using a hot glue-gun.
Make sure that the glue and the glue-gun itself gets very hot - definitely not when the child is around.
The glue dries straight away so very soon you have lovely "new" boxes to maybe use next time you have a gift to wrap!
