I’ve recently had a surplus of boxes floating around school and the house. Usually I just crush these bad boys and throw them in the recycle… but Ollie’s been REALLY into making things out of boxes lately… airports, fire stations, houses on fire, parking garages, cities… endless possibilities.
Constructing out of boxes alongside him has really been a joy for me. A reminder of the little things. A reminder to look at boxes (and life) differently, with an open mind. A reminder that the simplicity can bring such joy.
So, I dare you. I double dog dare you. Jump into cardboard box architecture without hesitation. You may find, like me, that you needed a reminder of the simple joys.
