Play with cardboard.

Not all learning is formal. Kids learn as much about gravity from falling and play structures as they do from formal lessons. They learn about building from blocks and Legos.

More and more educational theorists are saying that play is as important as formal lessons.

So we play.

In our house we always repurpose boxes. Whatever their size, we find a new use for them before recycling.

This time, I cut them up into a few different sizes an gave my son the different sized pieces of cardboard and some tape. And look what he created. It was a racetrack for his cars.

Abby got a box and she decided it would be a good place to play hide and seek with. Then it became the place she say and took her books to read.

Even boxes can be great toys.
