DIY Cardboard Box Train

Simply line up three cardboard boxes (or more, if you have more children), and set the children inside!

This simple cardboard setup never fails to entertain my children for impressive lengths of time. It’s a great complement to the equally simple cardboard airplane and cardboard car projects.
