It’s after the holidays and I have a pile of cardboard boxes that have taken over my house because I tend to hoard them to make fun forts with the kids. In fact, the most popular present my kids received this year was a cardboard pirate ship from a company called Box Creations. We usually order the kids one every year and they last for months but I also reinforce the edges with some heavy duty duct tape. However, if your not looking to spend the money and rather make one yourself I’ve rounded up some ideas from around the web for repurposing those boxes into fun projects for the kids!
