I originally got this idea from My Little Bookcase and the Magical sleigh ride post…and I loved the idea so when an empty box appeared at our house (you usually have a few around Christmas time). I knew what we could do with it!
Thomas was a bit tired the day we did this so it was a good activity to keep him a bit busy and entertained.
What you’ll need:
A box big enough for your child to fit in
Stickers (not necessary though)
Ribbon for reigns
What you do:
Cut a sleigh type shape out of the box using the stanley knife
Get your child to decorate the box using the paint, glitter and stickers (or whatever else you have laying around)
Attach ribbons to the front of the sleigh. I originally had one that made a loop but Thomas kept putting it around his neck so I cut it in half so there were 2 reigns.
Use your imagination and have fun!!
Thomas loves playing with his sleigh. It’s really brought a new dimension to Christmas this year… I also thought about cutting a hole in the bottom and attach straps so he can wear it and move around but we haven’t done that yet :-).
