• A Cardboard Box House

    This post is sponsored by Method. This month they’re introducing the first commercial product ever to be made of hand-collected ocean plastic. Watch the fascinating video about it right here.

    I thought it might be fun to try a recycled box craft this past weekend in honor of Method’s recycling of ocean plastic project. We shop a ton online and we often have boxes and boxes hanging around (with no room left in the small, shared recycling bin for them). So I started collecting a little pile for rainy day projects.

    Yesterday we made this fun little cardboard box house complete with rainbow shingles.

    Henry really liked drawing out the window designs and especially gluing those shingles on. There are so many directions you can take this. A Christmas-y scene, a dollhouse, a gingerbread house. I think he could have worked on it all day (how can I put this skill to good use??)

    Henry decided it wasn’t a house at all. It was a barn. The kind where crabs, dinosaurs, and midget giraffes all live in harmony side by side.

    Keep reading to see the step by step on how we made it!
