cardboard box houses


the children have had great fun this week playing in 2 large cardboard boxes from their daddys recent spending spree purchases. (he bought a fold up bike, and a new 'cabinet' for his bass guitar, a huge speaker to you and me.

It amazes me how they can play for so long with simple cardboard boxes, and yet at the same time I can vividly remember doing the same thing as a child myself. Our cardboard boxes used to evolve in their use as they were played with from house to boat, and got more bits cut out or broken off, until they were just pieces of cardboard, that you could slide around the grass on, tapdance on etc.


I enjoy watching the kids getting involved in such timeless games.



I decided I would sign up for the photomarathon in just over a weeks time, can't wait!!

This reminds me of the movie "Millions", by the director of Trainspotting. A nice and strange movie... With an important cardboard boxes-house in it....
