Milk Carton Blocks

ages 2-6


Empty milk cartons, art supplies

Activity Detail

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.

My girls were so creative with this activity! Don't forget other types of containers such as oatmeal containers. They make great columns. Just be sure you have a place to store your new massive building block set!

My son will love building with these cartons. I think it would keep him occupied for a long time!
