|Empty tissue box turned into car garage|
Our newest favorite toy at my house are some pretend play structures created from empty tissue boxes (from Target, if you must know). I told my husband about the idea, and he ran with it.
(My son's name has been erased from the photo.)
If you really wanted to go whole hog with this one, you could cover the boxes with a solid or patterned paper first (maybe some leftover wrapping paper from your child's last birthday party). I'm too lazy for that.
So the next time you are looking for a safe and eco-friendly toy for your child, check the recycling bin!
