Cardboard boxes are fantastic sources of play inspiration as they can be transformed and reinvented to create anything our tamariki can imagine, the ideas are endless.

Children learn:
• Resourcefulness – making reuse of materials
• Creativity – painting and imaginary play
• Problem solving – working with open-ended materials (a box instead of a bought car) teaches children to design, reflect, adapt and change their design.

What creations will your little ones make?
