Sometimes handmade items are more thoughtful and more intimate than those which are store-bought, especially while considering special occasions such as birthdays or anniversaries. Many times, we throw away discarded items which can be put to great use.
Cardboard boxes are one such category which is often uncared for and left alone in the corners of households, only to be thrown into the litter later on. Otherwise, many such cardboard boxes can be used in multiple ways for their hard, durable nature to create interesting crafts which add to the décor of rooms. Let us scroll down below and check out some cool ideas for handmade items made from cardboard for children. These projects are proof that it doesn’t take much to make kids super-excited.
Cardboard Box Ideas for Parents
1. A Miniature Kitchen Set
This shows an absolutely adorable picture of a kid smiling with her play cardboard kitchen set made by her parents for her. Such play kitchen sets can be great for children of any age starting from 5 years. Toys lie this which simulate real-life can teach valuable lessons which can come handy later.
2. A Second Cooking Set For The Kiddo
Here we see a second adorable cooking set made by parents for the kids. This one comes with all the package-four burners, tiny utensils, a mini sink, small glass jars and all other minute details present. Such a playset can be ideal for birthdays and celebratory gifts.
3. Cardboard Pizza Box
Pan pizzas are just awesome, aren’t they? There can only be a few things better than having a fresh pizza with loved ones to celebrate togetherness, be it any festival or any ordinary day. And this adorable cardboard pizza reminds us exactly of those kinds of good memories spent.
4. Cardboard Play House
Play houses are like a cosy little den for our tiny tigers. They provide the necessary safe space for youngsters, who might want some time for themselves with their playthings and storybooks in a corner of their own. Thus making such cardboard houses can be a truly endearing gesture to a child.
5. Cardboard Ice Cream Corners
This particularly colourful ice cream stall attracts all our attention for the right reasons. The combination of the red and white shed on the mainly blue booth earns brownie points for contrast, while the colourful popsicles etched on the body of the booth add to the charm even more.
6. Another Cardboard Kitchen Playset
How cute is this earthen hued kitchen burner set? Even adults would not want to let this one go, as the concept of soft pastel browns, white utensils with the brown board at the back makes the set perfect as a showpiece. One would totally want to cook with this, and to be honest, we can’t blame them, can we?
7. Cardboard Mini Elevator For Games
We remember being fascinated by the complex mechanism of elevators as kids ourselves. The way they went up and down carrying people, stopping at required destinations never failed to amaze us. This cardboard replica of an elevator can thus be a beginner’s guide to learn more about their magic.
8. Cardboard TV Set
This TV set is simple but charming with a big opening for the screen. Kids, while playing, can get in and out of the “screen” pretending they are the ones starring in the Television. This can be a fun game between siblings or friends while chilling on a relaxing day.
9. A cardboard Mini Fighter Jet
This mini fighter jet reminds us of everything vintage, as that brings a smile on our faces, reminiscing of the good ol’ days. As this kid smiles at us sitting atop the toy fighter jet, the parents get reminded of their childhoods, when they played and tousled, carefree.
10. Li’l Lillie’s Cardboard Kitchen
Lillie’s little cardboard kitchen is all pastels and pink in its floral charm. The pristine white curtains and the tiny burners, cabinets, sink and the refrigerator add a cherubic quality to this pretty piece. Don’t we all want to lose a track of time and spend out whole day playing with this one?
There we saw so many beautiful options by which parents can make daily usable items out of cardboard boxes instead of discarding them straightaway. We saw so many small adorable kitchen counters, elevators, fighter jets, television boxes, ice cream stalls and many other daily seen items which can be played with for fun.
