Build enchanting things with a carton

The ideas and inspiration for the delightful spaceship, puppet theater, taxi, lion’s cage, et cetera, come from Mrs Mary Parker Hobbs of Corona del Mar, California. What better use to make of those big, clumsy cartons that enclose your new refrigerator or range? (Ask your appliance dealer to toss some cartons your way if you’re not presently in the market.)

All you need is the carton plus paints, brushes, some hard-working glue or rubber cement, and any odds and ends you find around. Then just let your imagination — and your children — run riot!
