    Ohh yes!! Some more brilliant ideas here. We love recycling boxes too. Loved the jungle and the horse show-ground! Perfect ideas for after Xmas!

    Great idea! And very eco-friendly. My SiL made a cooker for my kids from a box and some buttons and I was so impressed! Hubs made the Death Star recently. I am in awe of the ‘out-of-the-box’ (scuse the pun) ideas crafty people come up with! Thanks

    I love this – cardboard boxes are the best!
    I used to make little hutches for cuddly toy animals for pretend pets when I was little, making beds, obstacle courses etc. for them with more boxes.
