1 Box, 1 Week and many ways to play

One day a box came into our home. It was just a perfect size. The box was very noble. It brought us goodies from far away city. We didn't wanted to send the box into trash. So we decided lets have some fun at last. First the box was kept in the store. It was forgotten for a day or two. Till I found a crow making holes in the box with its beak. I rescued the poor soul. It came inside and laid quietly in one corner of our room. It was only notice when we would brush past it.
Finally, the day had come when box was to going to get transformed. It became match a pair puzzle for my little girl who is three.

I just slit all the box lids into two. It was so much fun flipping the squares and looking for a match.

 A pair of shoes, Dinosaur and egg, bicycle and a helmet, flower and a butterfly, fries with soft drink and a monkey and the circus ring. The outer lids had stars, M's favorite. Some more encouragement stickers when getting the match right.

Now we were very friendly with the box. The box would carry M's toys across the house. Though it was rugged but was looking tired. So we gave it a new lease of life.
It all started with few straight lines with buttons and pom-poms. The city are not made in a day but our was made in few hours.

It had a circus, a Candyland, a zoo, a garden, a playground with swing and an airport to say the least. There were road which would lead us around. Park your cars in the car park we announced.

We eat candies, drove our cars, swayed on the swing. We loved our new colorful city and want to stick around. Till the box wants to be turned around!
