When I was a kid, my mom threw me a 50’s themed birthday party complete with a jukebox made out of an old refrigerator box. Once the party was over, it stuck around the house for a month or two while we continued to play with it. Quite a bit of use for an old refrigerator box that was otherwise bound for the recycling bin.
Now that I have my own kids, I can see how busy a simple cardboard box can keep them. I’ve added these AMAZING Mr. McGroovy’s Rivets to our Christmas wish list so we can create something spectacular.
You can download plans with step-by-step instructions to build projects like a firetruck, castle, space ship or lemonade stand. All you need is some free cardboard boxes, Mr. McGroovy’s Rivets and some paint.
