Happy meal planning Monday! Enjoy this week’s healthy recipes and 4 cardboard box hacks to use around the home or for making some fun memories with the kids.
If you’ve been doing tons of online shopping and have started accumulating empty cardboard boxes, there are lots of ways you can reuse them for DIY projects, storage, or for entertaining the kids. Here are my favorite ways to use a cardboard box:
Protect glassware or lightbulbs
A great way to safely store fine glassware or lightbulbs is a cardboard box, particularly a wine carton with empty partitions. Pro tip: Store the lightbulbs by wattage so you know exactly where to find the bulb you need.
Make a puppet theater
Nothing provides more hours of entertainment for kids than a large cardboard box. Stand a large cardboard box on its end and cut a big hold in the back for your puppeteers. Then, cut a smaller hole in the front for your stage. Decorate with markers, stickers, paint, etc. and put on a show!
Repair a roof
For temporary roof repair, put a piece of cardboard into a plastic bag. Slide it under your shingles and it should fix your issue until a professional can come.
Protect work surfaces
Cardboard is one of the best materials to use to protect your work surface – whether you are protecting your countertop, workbench, table, or desk. Use it to protect your surface from paint, marker, nicks from knives, and more.
