simple school holiday activity - the cardboard box

Our kids love nothing better than a cardboard box and with this cold weather, it's great to have something on hand for a simple craft activity.  Yesterday one formed a hand drawn background for a train set.  The white bits everywhere are snow (of course!) - Jono's become a fan of the scissors and has been constantly demanding more and more paper to satisfy his needs!  The kids thought it was great fun to scoop up snow flakes and sprinkle them over their game - not so fun is the clean up and I think we'll be finding little white sprinkles everywhere for some time to come...
