A fun cardboard box upcycle – make a washer or dryer for pretend play.
Emma’s been asking for a play washer/dryer for some time, so when I saw this booster seat box I knew exactly what to use it for.
I took the box apart and built it again wrong side out, so that the kids would have plenty of space for decorating. We made a door by tracing a saucer and then cutting with a kitchen knife.
Both kids had a blast decorating the box. I added some triangle, square, and circle buttons in different colors (at Emma’s request).
Emma is thrilled with her new washer/dryer – she couldn’t wait to tell Mike about it when he got home. Johnny seems to think it’s pretty cool too.
