Turn a Big Box Into a Play House

If you, or a friend or neighbor, got a new refrigerator or other large appliance delivered, grab the box, or ask at your local appliance shop for discarded large boxes. Cut out doors and windows, and have a blast decorating it with your child. You now have a playhouse for the kind of pretend play toddlers adore and learn from.
