Suzy’s Lockdown Activities and Challenges

These activities and challenges were created during Lockdown, but they can be used anytime!  The idea is to have fun and be as creative as you can be, with the materials you have at hand.

Little Box Challenge

Collect all the empty boxes, and clean plastic containers from your recycling and dig out the sticky tape, glue, scissors and paint.  There are 7 cardboard box crafts to keep little hands busy creating items that will provide hours of imaginative play inspiration!

♥  Create a mask
♥  Create a car or truck
♥  Create a crab or another sea creature
♥  Create a parachute
♥  Create a boat
♥  Create a box plane or car that you can sit in
♥  Create a box bed for your toys

Where will you go in your vehicle/boat or plane?    What toy will fit in the bed?   When you have your mask on what are you and what adventure are you going on? What adventure will you have in the “water” with the sea creature?    What other things can you create?
