How many times have you spent money on some fancy new toy for your child, only to have her ignore the toy and instead crawl into the large box it came in? Whether you're on a budget or just refuse to pay high prices for noisy, plastic toys, Box! offers parents do-it-yourself, environmentally friendly crafts that can be made with cereal boxes, packing boxes, toilet paper rolls, and egg cartons.

Filled with easy to make cardboard box craft ideas complete with supply lists, four-color photos, tips, and templates, Box! supplies parents with projects that will keep their children entertained for hours, such as: making "little people" with toilet paper rolls; creating a pirate ship out of a milk carton; fashioning a telescope using a paper towel tube; assembling planes, trains, and automobiles from cracker boxes, pasta boxes, or toothpaste boxes; and even constructing a child-sized desk out of three large boxes. This book is the perfect way to make fun, inexpensive, sustainable toys for your little one.
