Both of the boys woke up EARLY this morning with bad colds so I immediately new we would be having a "lounge around in our pajamas" kind of day. I wanted to do something fun for them so they could get their mind off being bored and feeling yucky. We've had a Pampers Diaper box (132 count) sitting in our mudroom for a couple days and I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to make them a box car!
My husband works for Subaru so of course this had to be a Subaru cardboard box car. First I trimmed the edges into the shape of a car (including the spoiler on the back!). Then we painted it with my sons Melissa and Doug Poster Paint Color: Blue. I worked on the body while big brother painted the headlights.
After the paint was dry, we glued on paper plates for wheels and one for the steering wheel. The horn is a round piece of cardboard. A little longer to let the glue dry and then we hit the highway! They took turns driving cross country on our US road map rug :o)
