Milk Carton Blocks
Empty milk cartons, art supplies
Don't throw away your empty milk cartons... start washing them out and creating a collection. When you fold down the top of the milk carton, they can become excellent building blocks -- large enough to build a fort. Once you get a good number of them collected, allow your child to decorate the milk cartons with paper, paint, or glitter to your child's suiting. This is an excellent project to teach your child recycling and environmentalism and satisfy your child's desire to BUILD, BUILD, BUILD.
