The Corner at Home Activities: Boxes

25 September 2020 | State Library of Queensland

Hello and welcome to The Corner at Home Activities. Today’s activity is inspired by cardboard boxes!

Kids - big and little, process complex information when we are engaged in play and having fun, so let’s put on our best imaginative, playful hats together. 

Let’s get started! Join Walter and start experimenting with different construction and play activities, it’s amazing the things you can do with a simple box! Encourage your little people to get creative by asking open-ended questions like what do you think will happen next?  What could we do differently? Movement and creative play is important for your little one to develop balance and agility.

What equipment and materials are needed?  

Use materials and objects found in your home environment:

  • cardboard boxes

  • collection of household items.
