This is a project made for a local day care center. I was able to use some of my neighbors kids as models. I think this will be a lot better than the cardboard box I had to play in as a child.

Back in our day it was great fun and everyone was okay with it.
Today this will be considered cruel punishment…........making kids play outside in the elements and forced to associate with other children and withstand the torture of being stuffed inside a small cube.
Nice to see you were brave enough to make a stand against society. Well done!
.........although tumbling down a hill inside a crushed cardboard box was pretty fun too…until the box fell apart. Then the game became “cardboard sledding” down the hill.

I love how a simple object could carve such pretty smiles on those kids. I guess their imagination is all they need to have a fun day outside. In terms of its price, I think it is affordable too as the shape is easy to work around with and requires only a small amount of wood to make. Great job!
