When my daughter was very small, maybe two years old, we visited my sister. She had a six-pack cooler on the kitchen floor left over from a recent picnic. Hanna was always very tiny; she crawled into the cooler and went on a little adventure that only her two-year-old mind could envision. I think she was pretending it was a boat. She was just small enough to squiggle her bottom and legs into the cooler as the rest of her made the motions of whatever “adventure” she was on. We all still talk about how cute she was, playing away in what was, basically, an empty container. But that container became an afternoon adventure for her creative little mind!
Common knowledge to many is the fact that a child would rather play with the box the gift came in than the gift itself! I am collecting stories for a project I am working on and I would love to hear about any “Box Adventures” you or your loved ones have enjoyed.
