· 25 fun, easy ideas for turning cardboard boxes into cool toys and games
· Great for getting kids away from video games
· “I’m bored”? Try cardboard!
Since the beginning of time, parents have known that there is no point buying Junior a fabulous, expensive toy; Junior always dismisses the toy and plays instead with the cardboard box it came in. Now The Cardboard Box Book celebrates that spirit by showing Junior (and his parents) exactly how to turn cardboard boxes of all sizes into amazing craft projects, toys, and games. Make an airplane, a tepee, a climbing wall for your action figure, a magnetic fishing game, a coat of arms, or a drum kit. With a little more time, Junior and an adult friend can create their own zoo, playhouse, or aquarium. Amusing text and practical directions make thinking outside the box a breeze!

Danny Walsh and his two sons, fifteen-year-old Jake and twelve-year-old Niall, never met a cardboard box they didn’t like. Danny Walsh is a lecturer in mental health nursing; Jake and Niall are students. This is their first book. They live in Lincolnshire, England.From School Library Journal:
Grade 3–5—An eye-catching cover showcases a few of these projects designed for indoor or outdoor play, and the book's lively design and layout, featuring bold colors and various fonts, will draw in young crafters. Opening chapters discuss where to find boxes of different sizes, what a basic tool kit consists of, how to use paint and glitter, when adult help is needed, and the time involved in constructing the creations. Clearly labeled and illustrated steps, lists of supplies, handy tips, suggested variations, and "Reality Check" fact boxes are found throughout. The authors-a father and his two sons-deliver plenty of humor along with instructions (including rating the projects on a scale from one to four, corresponding to the stress an involved parent may experience). The kid-friendly text adds to the overall enjoyment of this fun-filled book.—Augusta R. Malvagno, Queens Borough Public Library, NY
