I try not to spend a fortune on toys that the boys are going to grow out of quickly. That's why I love the idea of a Maker Box! Here's how I did it:
- Biggest plastic container I could find (our is 35 gallons)
- Add inexpensive packing tape
- Throw in a pair of scissors
- Instead of recycling our trash, throw it in the Maker Box! (This includes things like toilet paper rolls, popsicle sticks, milk jugs, etc.)
The first thing Henry made was a "cup rattle." I have no idea what he put inside it because he somehow managed to tape up the whole thing very securely.
