When I was a child, my favorite activity was to play with gigantic cardboard boxes. I remember cutting doors and windows and pretending it was my house.
Anytime I could get my hands on one of these boxes, my imagination would run wild.
I even remember my brother sleeping in a box for days.
I was happy to see that there is an exhibit in the Chicago Children's Museum that is all about cardboard boxes. Unboxed: Adventures in Cardboard was created by the staff at the museum.
The theme behind the exhibit is "discovering the power of imagination and creativity together."
